Iran Adopts Int'l Energy Charter

Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian signed the International Energy Charter declaration in a conference in Tokyo, adopting the 25-year-old non-binding agreement alongside Iraq and Guatemala on Friday.

It is aimed to promote mutually beneficial energy cooperation among nations for the sake of energy security and sustainability.
The ceremony extended the overall number of countries and organizations that signed the International Energy Charter to 80. The International Energy Charter declaration was adopted and signed at the high-level Ministerial Conference in The Hague, the Netherlands on 20 May 2015.
