Three Russian state-controlled oil companies, including OAO Rosneft and OAO Gazprom Neft, may begin delivering gasoline to Iran in a month, said the head of the Iran Commission of the Moscow Chamber of Commerce Industry.
Talks are being held on a “working level” and the first delivery may take place in late August or September, Rajab Safarov said in an interview in Moscow Thursday. Iranian Oil Minister Masoud Mir-Kazemi traveled to Moscow earlier this month to sign a “road map” on Russian energy cooperation for the next 30 years.
While the Kremlin in June supported United Nations sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program, Russia criticized additional measures adopted by the United States and EU targeting the Iranian energy industry.
