Iran says ready to transit natural gas to Europe

Iran is in talks with the European Union to supply natural gas to the European countries, Financial Tribune daily reported on Saturday, APA reports citing Xinhua.

The Iranian natural gas will be sent to Europe through a pipeline from Turkey, Hassan Montazer-Torbati, CEO of National Iranian Gas Company, was quoted as saying.

"The infrastructure is in place and talks are underway with the EU private companies," Montazer-Torbati said, adding that as soon as the talks produce results, Greece will be among the first gas export destinations.
