Azerbaijan could take up the role of gas mediator between Iran and Europe, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani confirmed this notion during his visit to Baku.
Iran can be a reliable supplier of energy resources for European countries and strategic location of Azerbaijan can provide a good opportunity to export gas from Iran to Europe.
Baku, being an initiator of Southern Gas Corridor, through which Azerbaijani gas will go to Europe, personally taking part in creation of necessary infrastructure, is already realizing a project of passing gas from new reserves to Europe. Iran can be one of these resources with its huge gas supplies, according to a statement by NIGC.
In order to export gas from Iran to Europe , Iran needs to build a pipeline to connect with the existing gas infrastructure in Azerbaijan, the statement added.
