09:26, December 27, 2011

TEHRAN, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Iran signed an agreement with Afghanistan to export one million tons of Iranian oil products annually to the country, the local satellite Press TV reported Monday.

According to the contract, Iran will export products including gasoil (diesel fuel), jet fuel and gasoline to Afghanistan, said the report.

The agreement was signed Monday by visiting Afghanistan's Minister of Commerce and Industry Anwar-ul-Haq Ahadi and managing director of the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company Alireza Zeighami.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the signing ceremony, Zeighami said that 60 to 70 percent of the export will be in the form of gasoil.

The price of Iran's oil products will be determined according to international rates, he added.

"We already exported gasoil to Afghanistan, but export of gasoline and jet fuel will start next year," Zeighami was quoted as saying.
