BAKU (Sputnik) — On Monday, the Russian, Iranian and Azerbaijan presidents met in Baku. According to Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev, the talks were intense and the leaders of the three countries managed to discuss a wide range of international issues, as well as certain matters of regional cooperation.

On the same day, Iranian Petroleum Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said that Iran was considering increasing its energy ties with Azerbaijan and the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR).

"This is a crucial question for Iran, and most likely, in the near future, Iranian gas will be pumped to Azerbaijani underground storage facilities. Azerbaijan has two gas storage facilities, including Garadagh and Galmaz, the capacity of which is up to 5 billion cubic meters of gas," Zamaninia said in an interview with Azerbaijan's Trend news agency, published on Thursday.
