Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi said on Thursday that talks on cooperation in the energy sector will be the main issue of discussion in Turkey. The Iranian minister arrived in the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Wednesday and met with the Turkish prime minister and other officials including Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. He added that based on extensive cooperation between Tehran and Ankara and their positive historical ties, Iran prefers that any pipeline which can transfer Iran’s gas to Europe pass through Turkey.
