European Officials to Visit Iran to Develop Energy Ties

Date : Jan 20, 2016

The European Commission will undertake a first "technical assessment mission" in February to explore energy ties with Iran, European Climate and Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete said.


According to a report, an EU official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said around 15 EU officials would go on the initial four-day technical visit and after that, high-level Commission staff, possibly with a business delegation, would travel to Iran.


Arias Canete said potential areas for cooperation included all areas of energy.


In particular, he mentioned developing liquefied natural gas and also pipeline shipments through a route the European Union refers to as the "Southern Gas Corridor" to carry supplies into southern Europe.
