Iran has expressed interest in supplying Russian petroleum products to the north of the country, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said at a press conference in Tehran.
“The Iranian side expressed interest in the supply of petroleum products to the north of Iran in the amount of 4-5 million tons. In principle, such deliveries are possible, now the Ministry of Energy will work out these issues with our companies. Here it is necessary to consider the price conditions and infrastructure capabilities, including using the port of Makhachkala, railway infrastructure,” he said.
“These are either supplies to the north for use in the north of Iran, or possibly supplies to the north with a spot in the south. From the point of view of general supplies, it does not matter, because it will be supplies to the north,” Novak added. He stressed that there is no question of oil supplies. “The Iranian side has expressed a desire to receive oil products. We do not have dimensionless capacities, so we set priorities within the framework of common capabilities,” the Deputy Prime Minister explained.
