Turkmenistan’s Foreign Minister Rasit Meredow has said that his country is eager to pump more gas to Iran.
He made the remarks in Ashgabat on Saturday night while speaking at the closing ceremony of Iran-Turkmenistan Joint Cooperation Commission.
Meredow said that Iran and Turkmenistan have had good talks over the past two days.
A gas contract was signed between Iran and Turkmenistan in 1997, the minister said, adding that Ashgabat is ready for further gas cooperation with Tehran.
Noting that a gas swap is also underway between the two neighboring countries, the Turkmen foreign minister said that Ashgabat is eager to continue and increase such cooperation with Iran.
Also referring to electricity exchange between the two countries, Meredow said that his country is seeking to export electricity to third countries via Iranian soil.
