Addressing Anatolian News Agency before leaving for Syria along with the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Guler said that according to the Iranian officials in charge, the disruption of gas export to Turkey resulted from implementation of the new gas transfer pipeline in Iran.
A former report released by the Turkish news agency quoting the officials of a Turkish state oil and gas pipe line enterprise had attributed the drop in Iran's gas export to Turkey from 750,000 cubic meters/hour to 90,000 to its boost in the domestic consumption. It added that the process of gas transfer completely stopped on December 18.
Turning to the necessary measures taken by Iran in this respect, Guler noted, "I don't think that temporary disruption of gas transfer has caused any problem.
"Gas flow from Iran to Turkey resumed on Wednesday in a limited volume and is expected to increase within a few days."
