Brazil Oil Giant Petrobras to Keep Iran Office.

Gabrielli was quoted by the local Estado news agency.

Brazil has been under pressure from the United States to reduce business relations with Iran.

In recent statements, Brazilian officials have called for more negotiations with the Iran over its peaceful nuclear before adopting any sanctions.

In comments last month, Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim said, "Brazil still sees space to negotiate with Iran."

In the past few years, Petrobras has worked in partnership with Iran's government in oil development on Iranian soil. Petrobras has made total investments in Iran of some $30 million.

Gabrielli said the decision to maintain Tehran office despite lack of new investments in Iran was "an internal matter."
