Tasnim reported that Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said the country has accepted Russia’s proposal to construct a subsea pipeline for exporting natural gas from the Islamic Republic to India.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday, Mr Zanganeh dismissed as “untrue” claims that he had not accepted the Indians’ proposal to construct the subsea pipeline, saying that the suggestion was put forward by the Russians and Iran welcomed it.

He further said during a visit to Iran by Russian President Vladimir Putin in the last Iranian year (March 2017- March 2018), a memorandum of understading (MoU) was signed with the Russian energy minister and the Gazprom in this regard.

Currently, Russians are responsible for pursuing the construction of the pipeline, the oil minister went on to say.
