TEHRAN (NNI) Iranian Deputy Oil Minister Javad Owji said Sunday that Irans gas exports to Europe is sustainable and enjoys a secure future. Speaking to reporters, Owji outlined the gas pipeline agreement on transferring Irans gas to Iraq and Syria then to Lebanon and Europe. He said once the transfer is done Syria will purchase 20 to 25 million cubic meters of Irans gas on a daily basis. Due to Europes demand for energy, Turkish officials have now given permission to 300 billion cubic meters of Irans gas per day to be exported through their country to Europe, said Owji. He further added this issue has made the West sanctions on the Islamic Republic ineffective. According to the official, Iran produces 600 million cubic meters of gas per day, 37 million cubic meters of which are exported. By launching South Pars Gas Fields in future, the Islamic Republic will be capable of daily producing 1.2 billion cubic meters of gas and exporting 200 to 250 million cubic meters of it to world states. Meanwhile, Irans foreign minister will visit India in the coming weeks, news agency ISNA quoted an official as saying, as the two countries seek a way of ending a standoff over unmet payments for oil exports. Ali Akbar Salehi will hold talks with his Indian counterpart on bilateral and international issues, Mehdi Nabizadeh, Irans ambassador to India, told ISNA. (Salehi) will travel to India within the next two months and we hope by that time the problem is resolved for good, he said. Iran, facing increased isolation internationally, and energy-hungry India have been looking to resolve an impasse triggered in December when the Reserve Bank of India ended a regional clearing mechanism for trade payments to Iran. That move won praise from Washington, which is using sanctions in a bid to get Tehran to halt its nuclear programme. New Delhi imports 400,000 barrels of crude per day from Iran -- 12 percent of its oil demand. The collective debt to Iran of Indian importers including BPCL, IOC, HPCL and Essar has risen to more than $5 billion during the impasse. Asked about pressure for action from Irans parliament, Nabizadeh said the foreign ministry was on the case, but the final arbiters would be the countries central banks. Indian firms have parked some money with the central bank to pay for supplies, Indian Oil Secretary G.C. Chaturvedi said. In a letter dated June 27, Iran said it would halt crude exports to India on Aug. 1 if the situation was not resolved. Earlier this week a senior oil ministry official said Iran had not as yet decided whether halt exports.
