AKIPRESS.COM - National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) has announced that it will bring a suit against Turkmenistan with the international courts following the interference of the Turkmen Foreign Ministry in a gas dispute between Iran and a Turkmen company, reports Irna

The meddling was clearly against the bilateral gas deal, under which the Turkmen side should provide gas for parts of the northern Iranian provinces, the NIGC said in a statement.

Filing a suit against the Turkmen company is on Iran's agenda as the talks between the two sides have produced no outcome to solve the dispute over the claimed arrears, and Turkmenistan stopped gas exports to Iran, the NIGC said in response to the Turkmen Foreign Ministry's statement on Jan 3 saying the country has cut off its gas exports to Iran.

“Türkmengaz suddenly and in an illogical manner, contradictory to the agreement, halted gas deliveries to Iran, demanding quick payment of the disputed amount,” the website of the NIGC reported.
