Iran Parliament after enhanced ties with Turkmenistan: MP

Iran Parliament after enhanced ties with Turkmenistan: MP

Based on Iran's foreign policy which prioritizes ties with neighbors, Tehran is after enhanced relations with Ashgabat and removing hindrances to bilateral exchange, a senior Iranian lawmaker announced here on Monday.

Iran has to make maximum use of neighbors' capacities, Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, spokesman for Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told reporters in this Iranian capital city, IRNA reported.

About the today's Commission meeting, Naqavi Hosseini said it reviewed economic problems, issues of gas and electricity in particular, between Iran and Turkmenistan.

Turkmenistan, the lawmaker said, has already complained about its demands that Iran should meet, and the Iranian officials in charge of power issues said that the banking problems have hindered the solution process.

The today's Parliament session, the parliamentarian said, decided that the problems in cooperation with Turkmens should be solved in any ways and obstacles in the way of relations with all neighboring countries should be studied and removed.

The dispute started between Iran and Turkmenistan over gas imports when Ashgabat, despite its previous agreements with Tehran, demanded illogically higher prices for its exported gas to Iran's northern regions.
