Informed sources told FNA on Sunday that Switzerland has recently approached the Iranian oil ministry officials for the start of negotiations over importing the country's gas supplies, Fars News Agency (FNS) reports.

Greece has also indirectly called for Iran's gas exports since the European country's officials believe that Iran can transfer its gas to Greece through Turkey and then to other countries across the Europe.

Other countries which have entered direct gas talks with Iran include Germany (a member of the world powers negotiating with Tehran over its nuclear program), Poland, Japan, Austria, Oman, Turkey and Iraq.

According to the sources, the European and other countries' officials and analysts believe that Iran is the safest supplier of energy in the world.
