Iran’s Ambassador to Kazakhstan Romin Mehmanparast made the remarks at the opening ceremony of an exhibition on “Iran’s Oil and Gas Potentials “.
According to him, Iran’s biggest gas and oil extraction companies and refineries are presented at the exhibition.
The diplomat further stressed the need for Iran, Kazakhstan and other Caspian states to devise a joint exploration and navigation project.
