Iran’s Owji says will discuss petrochemical exports to SCO member states in Kyrgyzstan

SHANA (Tehran) – Iranian Oil Minister Javad Owji said on Wednesday he will hold talks on exporting Iranian petrochemicals and other necessary products to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states in Kyrgyzstan.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the weekly cabinet session and prior to his departure for an SCO meeting in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek, he added, “Exports of technical and engineering services, investment in oil, gas, and energy pipeline projects, and transit of gas of the Central Asian states via Iran will be among the topics of negotiations.”

On Tuesday, Owji said the meeting is aimed at devising a strategy for promoting cooperation in the energy sector.

The meeting provides a good opportunity for reaching a multilateral agreement on gas transit and constructing a North-South gas corridor in the Central Asian region, Owji continued.

Accompanied by a high-ranking delegation, Owji and First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber left Tehran for Bishkek on Wednesday to attend the 22nd Meeting of the Council of Heads of Government of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Member States.

The Kyrgyz capital will host the SCO meeting on Thursday.
