12 January 2007 [15:42] - TODAY.AZ
An Iranian delegation will soon get to Baku to negotiate on the start of gas exports to Azerbaijan for 2007 amid Azerbaijan's having refused to buy Russia gas in a price row.

Azerbaijan's ambassador to Iran, Abbasali Hasanov, told the APA that there is no problem with the country's importing Iranian gas supplies.

He said the region has faced a gas crisis. "In my opinion, it is high time to set the fixed prices for natural gas supplies in the region. The suppliers' differently charging importers leads to a plight in the region," he underlined.

The ambassador didn't release the amount and prices of gas imports, saying talks is still continuing.

He added that Iran's preliminary proposal on the amount and price is quite favorable for Baku.
