Iran Has Resumed Gas Supplies To Turkey, Interrupted By An Explosion In March

The Iranian side has resumed gas supplies to Turkey, which were interrupted in March due to a terrorist attack on the pipeline, according to the Shana Agency, referring to the national gas company of Iran.

It's worth noting that gas supplies are carried out according to previously reached agreements between Ankara and Tehran.

On March 31, an explosion occurred on the Tabriz - Ankara gas pipeline in Turkey. As a result, the export of Iranian gas to the neighboring country was suspended. According to the national gas company of Iran, the explosion was organized by terrorist groups.

The Tabriz-Ankara gas pipeline is about 2.5 thousand km long and supplies gas from Iran to Turkey. Its maximum capacity is 14 billion cubic meters per year.
