Iran is ready to export natural gas via a pipeline or in liquefied natural gas form to European countries, the country's Deputy Oil Minister for International Affairs Ali Majedi said Wednesday.

Sending the gas with the Trans Anadolu Pipeline project, which will carry Azerbaijani natural gas to Europe, is the most cost-effective choice, Majedi said to the official Iranian news agency IRNA.

Underlining that an agreement on natural gas supplies with Europe would be a win-win deal, Majedi added that such an agreement would also help Europe to reduce its dependency on gas from Russia.

Iran currently holds world’s second largest proven natural gas reserves.
