    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Iran plans to discuss new oil and gas contracts with Russian companies in the near future, co-chair of the Russia-Iran joint economic commission and Iranian Communications Minister Mahmoud Vaezi said Friday.

    Earlier it was announced that Iran would prepare new oil investment contract for the international oil and gas companies by July 2016.
