Iran’s nuclear program no bar to gas cooperation with EU, Ahmadinejad says

Iran’s nuclear program should not impede the Islamic republic’s gas cooperation with the European Union, Ira­nian President Mah­moud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday, RIA Novosti informs. “Eu­rope sees the nu­cle­ar program as a problem,” the Azerbaijani Trend news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying at a press conference in Baku. “This should not be an obstacle for the purchase of gas.” If the EU wants to import Iranian gas it should compromise, Ahmadinejad said. “If Eu­rope needs gas, we are ready to negotiate,” he said. Ac­cording to BP, Iran holds 137.6 billion barrels of recoverable oil and 29.61 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
