Europe wants rich countries in natural resources to join the Southern Gas Corridor, European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic said at the press conference dedicated to the 4th Ministerial Meeting of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) Advisory Council.
According to him, all possible options have been considered: ‘We are ready to discuss the issue of Iran’s joining SGC with all partners of the project. This is important that the SGC connects Europe with rich countries in gas resources. We’ll be interested in involving new purchasers and suppliers. Within these meetings, negotiations have been conducted with Turkmenistan and Iran’.
He noted that Iran is interested in transportation of oil: ‘For this purpose, pipelines should be constructed and infrastructure should be created in Iran’.
