Iran, Syria reach deal on natural gas pipeline

NICOSIA — Iran and Syria have signed an energy pipeline accord.


The Middle East allies have approved a project to construct a pipeline between Iran and Syria. Officials said the pipeline would pump Iranian natural gas to Syria over the next few years.

"The strategic gas pipeline will transfer gas from Iran to Iraq, Syria, and the Mediterranean Sea and this is connected to the Arab gas pipeline," Syrian Oil Minister Sufian Alaw said.

Alaw, during a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Massoud Mir Kazemi, said Iran, Iraq and Syria would examine the pipeline project later in 2011, Middle East Newsline reported.

He said Syria has sought to acquire three million cubic meters of Iranian gas per day.
