TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's Oil Ministry says oil exports have been halted to Britain and France.

The statement posted on the ministry's shana.ir website on Sunday appears to be part of pre-emptive action by Iran after the European Union decided to boycott Iranian oil beginning in July. The 27-nation EU accounts for about 18 percent of Iran's oil exports.
