Spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi stated on Monday that the reason behind the two-month stop in the export of Iran's gas to Turkey is a terrorist act that occurred in the soil of the neighboring country, APA reports citing IRNA.

A halt in Iran's oil exports to Turkey has no political or economic reasons, Mousavi said addressing his weekly press conference.

Mousavi urged the other side to take measures to solve the problem and repair [the pipes] soon.

The issue may be among the questions about which Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will talk with Turkish officials during his ongoing visit to Istanbul, Mousavi noted.
