The Deputy Oil Minister in International Affairs said that Iran is willing to start win-win negotiations with Pakistan and India, adding "these two countries have to understand Iran,” Mehr reports.
Pointing to India’s expression of readiness to reach a final agreement with Iran to pay the oil demand, Mansour Moazami said "Unilateral relations cannot meet the interests of Iran and India in the short term. Right now India is one of the great, strategic partners of Iran in oil and gas industries. Grounds must be prepared to increase the volume of Iran’s oil export in keeping with India’s needs. With this in mind, we are ready to hold talks with the Indian side in order to arrive at a win-win situation.”
He also provided comments on Pakistan’s recent request to visit Tehran for talks on stretching the term for natural gas import from Iran, adding "No doubt in the new round of Iran-Pakistan negotiations the IP and gas export to the country will be on the agenda. The Oil Minister welcomes stronger relations with Pakistan and that could be the focal point in the negotiations.”
