Japan refiners need 3 mths to resume Iran oil imports even with nuclear deal - PAJ head

TOKYO, May 27 (Reuters) - Japanese refiners will need at least three months to resume Iranian oil imports even if the Iranian nuclear talks lead to an agreement and a lifting of sanctions, Tsutomu Sugimori, president of the Petroleum Association of Japan (PAJ) said on Thursday.

Sugimori, who also serves as chairman of Eneos Holdings Inc , said the company’s role is to support the Tokyo Olympics as a partner since there are athletes and officials who eagerly want the Games to be held.
