LONDON - A senior Iranian diplomat urged OPEC's secretary general to keep the group away from the political agenda of some members and said none should be allowed to take over another's share of its oil exports, Tehran's oil ministry news agency said on Sunday.

"No country is allowed to take over the share of other members for production and exports of oil under any circumstance, and the OPEC Ministerial Conference has not issued any license for such actions," SHANA quoted Kazem Gharibabadi, Iran’s permanent envoy to Vienna-based international organizations was quoted as saying.
