Iran, India to hold talks on gas supply
font size    

Iranian Vice President Rahim Mashaee said Monday in New Delhi that talks are on track for an early accord with India on gas supply, Indo-Asian News Service reported.

Iranian oil minister will soon visit India to talk about the gas supply deal, said Mashaee, who was attending an international seminar as Deputy Chairman of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of Iran here.

Apart from the five million tons liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal signed last year, India is seeking another 2.5 million tons of LNG and 60 to 90 million cubic meters of gas annually through the proposed Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline.

India, Pakistan and Iran earlier announced that they will hold the first trilateral talk of minister level in April here to discuss the gas pipeline project. But local media reported that India and Iran might hold bilateral talks about the gas supply deal.

Mashaee met with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday.

On India's vote against Iran at International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in February, Mashaee said that he hoped India would not be influenced by the propaganda of the developed nations.

Mashaee said that Manmohan Singh assured India's support to peaceful use of nuclear technology by Tehran.
