TEHRAN, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Iran has stopped oil exports to six European states in retaliation for European Union sanctions imposed on the Islamic state's key export, the country's English language Press TV reported on Wednesday.

"Iran cuts its oil exports to six European countries," Press TV reported, without naming them. (Writing by Parisa Hafezi; editing by Jason Neely)
