Pakistan plans to import 165 million liters of Iranian diesel oil annually
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 3 / Trend F.Milad /
Pakistan has recently announced readiness to import as much as 165 million liters of diesel oil from Iran per year, Mehr news agency reported without mentioning a source.
If the two sides come to terms, the amount of diesel oil will be exported by the rail network, the report added.
The managing director of the National Iranian Oil Products Distribution and Production Company, Alireza Zeighami, has said that Pakistan has offered Iran for importing gasoline, diesel oil, kerosene, and furnace oil.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Iran would become a gasoline exporter by 2013, despite the West's imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic. The United States, Britain and Canada announced new measures against Iran's energy and financial sectors in November and the European Union is considering a ban - already imposed by the United States.
