Long-term Interests More Important in Gas Line Negotiations

TEHRAN – Member of Majlis Energy Commission noted that during negotiations that have started yesterday over construction of the so-called peace pipeline, priority should be given to long-term interests of negotiating parties.

Hassan Moradi told Petroenergy Information Network that construction of the pipeline will lead to development of investment, more trust among countries as well as increased interactions among Iran, Indian and Pakistan.

Asked about some criticism that Iran’s benefits in the project are lower than the other two countries, the MP stated that Iran does not think solely about benefits and follows more important goals and noted that pricing mechanism of the projects is more important that benefits alone.

Representative of Arak city at the Iranian parliament further stated that Iraq has asked Iran to build a refinery in that country.

“We warmly welcome that request, because if we did not help our neighboring country, the occupiers will stay there,” he said.
