    A Pakistani delegation will visit Tehran in the near future to finalize gas agreements previously signed during Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s visit to Islamabad, the managing director of National Iranian Gas Export Company (NIGC) said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to Kameli, gas contracts could enhance economic and cultural relations "given the emphasis laid upon by President Rouhani on gas interactions with the neighboring countries, specially Pakistan."

    "The visit of Pakistani delegation will take place for finalizing gas agreements," Ali Reza Kameli was quoted as saying by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

    Iran's attempts to increase the number of energy contracts comes after the lifting of the international sanctions against the country on January 16, following the International Atomic Energy Agency's confirmation of Tehran’s compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

    The lifting of the anti-Iran sanctions became possible after Iran reached a deal on its nuclear program with the P5+1 group of international mediators on July 14, 2015. The deal entailed Iran agreeing to ensure the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities.
