Mumbai, Oct 31
RELIANCE Industries today said that all purchases of Iraqi crude oil supplies made by the company were done at prevailing international prices and that "no other payments were involved in these purchases."
The Volcker Committee report has clearly brought out these facts, said a statement from the company.
The context was the Volcker report on the oil-for-food programme on which media reports had made reference to Reliance Industries, the statement added.
"The company would like to make it abundantly clear that it purchased Iraqi crude oil from suppliers, pursuant to UN-approved contracts under the `Oil-for-Food Programme' for use in its refinery," it said.
