Saudi Arabia's energy minister Khalid al-Falih told Reuters on Thursday that China has "not yet" asked for more crude oil after the United States decided to end sanction waivers on Iranian oil imports that had permitted Beijing to keep buying from Tehran. The United States re-imposed sanctions against Iran's oil exports last November, but Washington initially allowed the eight biggest buyers of Iranian oil - China is number 1 - to keep purchasing limited imports for six months ending April. Al-Falih spoke briefly on the sidelines of a visit to Beijing for a summit on China's Belt and Road economic development initiative, rebuilding the old Silk Road to connect China with Asia, Europe and beyond.
