To dominate the regional energy markets, Iran requires a much more dynamic diplomacy, a senior energy security analyst said.
"Establishing close diplomatic relations with the neighboring states, namely Pakistan and Turkmenistan, can definitely help the country introduce its strategic commodities like natural gas and energy to overseas markets," Omid Shokri Kalehsar was also quoted as saying in an interview with ILNA on Monday.
Pointing to the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline project, Shokri noted that even if the venture does not take off, it will give India and Pakistan bargaining power in future negotiations over gas and liquefied natural gas with Iran as they can count on other suppliers.
TAPI is a 1,800-kilometer stretch of pipeline planned to transfer natural gas from Turkmenistan to India.
