Transfer Of Oil and Gas Through Iran To Afghanistan

Officials in the Islamic Republic of Iran say the government
has issued a permit to transport gas and oil through its territory to
Afghanistan.

Hassan Kazemi Qomi, Iran’s special envoy for Afghanistan,
wrote on his Twitter page that the license was issued for three months at the
request of the Afghan government to meet the needs of the Afghan people in the
winter.

The certificate comes as fuel prices, including fuel and
liquefied natural gas, have risen in recent months in Afghanistan due to rising
dollar rates.

According to Iranian officials, the license was issued only
for oil and gas products, allowing commercial companies to transit the product
from Iran to Afghanistan.
