Mongolia demands for Iran’s oil

TEHRAN, Dec. 25 (MNA) – Mongolian FM visited Iran’s oil ministry on Thursday and negotiated with Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh for buying oil and having Mongolian personnel trained by Iran.   

On condition that Mongolia and China agree on transferring contracts, Iran’s oil export to the landlocked country is possible, said Iran's Petroleum Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh after his meeting with Mongolian FM on Thursday in Tehran.

Mongolia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Lundeg Purevsuren went to Iran’s oil ministry to have bilateral talks with Iranian oil minister on the ways to export Iran’s oil to the landlocked country of central Asia.

At the end of the meeting Zanganeh told the media that Mongolia is willing to buy Iran’s oil but the problem of transferring the cargo is up to them to cooperate with companies of their neighboring country, China.

Their need is too small for Iran and Iran can meet their demand of 50 to 60 thousand of barrels per day, noted the Iranian oil minister.

Zanganeh announced that Iran has agreed to hold short-term trainings for oil personnel of Mongolia.

The Mongolian Foreign Minister also, for his part, during the meeting, voiced his country’s eagerness for expansion of ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Purevsuren who had arrived in Tehran on Wednesday, left the Iranian capital, on Thursday, after meeting with a host of Iranian officials like Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Vice Governor of Iran’s Central Bank Gholamali Kamyab, and Minister of Agriculture Mahmoud Hojjati. He also met with Mongolian scholars residing in Tehran.
