TEHRAN (FNA)- Officials from Iran, India and Pakistan are slated to convene in a meeting in Tehran next month to continue talks over a 7.4-billion-dollar pipeline project which is due to take Iran's gas to the two energy hungry South Asian nations.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a symposium on 'Safety Instrumentation in Oil and Gas industry' in New Delhi this week, Indian Oil and Petroleum Secretary, M.S. Srinivasan reiterated his country's insistence on gas delivery from Iran at the India-Pakistan border.
He added that the stated position of Iran as of now has been that they would deliver the gas for both countries at Iran-Pakistan border.
Srinivasan also said there would be no extension of the deadline for bids for its latest oil and gas asset licensing beyond the end of June. The deadline had been extended three times already, the latest being in May.
