1 min read

An attack that damaged a pipeline that carries gas to Turkey will resume operation within 3 days.

Iran will resume exporting natural gas to Turkey in three days after the flow was halted after saboteurs attacked a pipeline carrying natural gas from the Islamic republic to its neighbour, Iran’s English-language Press TV quoted an official as saying on Tuesday.

“According to Turkish officials, the pipeline will become operational within the next three days,” Press TV quoted Yadollah Baybordi, director of Gas Transmission Operation District 8 at the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC), as saying.

“Gas Transmission Operation District 8 is ready to cooperate [with Turkish technicians] to solve the problem that has affected Iran-Turkey gas exports pipeline,” he added.
