Iran's officials say they will consider this proposal
Iran will examine Ukraine's proposal to transit Iran's oil to Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
It was reported by Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh after he held talks with Ukraine's Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Ihor Nasalyk in Tehran, on August 1.
According to Iran's Oil Ministry, Tehran is also ready to start oil cooperation with Ukraine, despite the fact the Ukraine's refining capacity is low, so it imports oil derivatives.
Zanganeh noted that Ukraine's engineering industry also looks attractive. The parties are currently working on cooperation in the field of gas turbines and compressors.
As earlier reported, the Ukrainian delegation headed by Nasalyk is on a working visit to Iran on July 31 - August 2, where they plan to meet with Energy Minister Hamid Chitchiyan.
Also, they will hold bilateral and multilateral meetings with representatives of Iranian companies.
