    Iran is ready to discuss on Monday with Russia supplies of 100,000 oil barrels per day within the framework of the "oil-for-goods" deal between the countries, Mahmoud Vaezi, Iran's information and communications technology minister said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last month, Russian Minister of Energy Alexander Novak said that Moscow and Tehran were expected to reach an "oil-for-goods" delivery from Iran agreement in the coming weeks. He said later that the deliveries may constitute 100,000 barrels a day and five million metric tons a year.

    "Today, Mr [Iranian Deputy Minister of Petroleum for International Affairs and Trading Amir-Hossein] Zamaninia is a member of my delegation, and he is ready to hold talks on this issue as well as on the issue of our working group on energy," Vaezi said ahead of his meeting with Novak.
