Iran to Restart Gas Exports to Turkey
Iranian natural gas supplies to Turkey, disrupted due to a pipeline blast in the north eastern part the country, are set to start again, Press TV has reported quoting an Iranian official.
Chairman of Iran Majlis (parliament) Energy Committee Massoud Mirkazemi said Friday that exports to Turkey will soon resume.
Earlier this week, a blast hit a pipeline carrying natural gas from Iran to Turkey in the north eastern Turkish province of Agri.
“The people of Turkey need Iranian gas.... We are not looking to create problems for Turkish people, therefore, Iran’s gas will definitely go to Turkey and we will not pay attention to [viewpoints of] the US or European Union in Iran-Turkey relations,” he asserted.
