DUSHANBE, September 4, 2011, Asia-Plus  -- Iran is ready to supply its oil products to Tajikistan.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad remarked this in Dushanbe yesterday while speaking to reporters after a meeting with his Tajik counterpart Emomali Rahmon.

Referring to common ethnic, cultural and historical backgrounds of the two countries, President Ahmadinejad said that they were interested in supplying oil products to Tajikistan.

According to him, the supply of Iranian oil products to Tajikistan may be arranged in the near future.  “If we fail to organize these deliveries though the pipeline, we will seek other ways of supplying oil products to Tajikistan,” Ahmadinejad noted.

He added that those and other issues would be discussed at the ninth session of the Tajik-Iranian commission for trade and economic cooperation that would take place in Tehran soon.
