    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh will visit Moscow in early October to take part in the Russian Energy Week-2018 forum, according to the event's program.

    Zanganeh is expected to join Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Qatar’s Energy Minister Mohammed Saleh Al-Sada in a panel session on the prospects of the global gas market on October 3.

    Iran is facing a second set of US sanctions to be imposed on November 4 as part of Washington's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

    The Russian Energy Week was first held in 2017 and works as a platform for showing the prospects of Russia's fuel and energy industry and exploring the potential of international collaboration in the field.
