The head of National Iranian Gas Exports Company said US President Donald Trump's hawkish remarks on not renewing sanctions' relief against the country are unlikely to shackle Iran-Oman gas cooperation.
Mehran Amir-Moeini also told Shana that Oman is keen to cooperate with Iran in the gas project that will not be affected by the US president's decisions over Iran's nuclear deal.
Iran signed an agreement with Oman in 2013 to deliver 28 million cubic meters of gas per day to the Persian Gulf littoral state for 15 years. The two nations hope the gas flow will begin by 2020.
However, concerns have been raised over Trump's recent remarks about reimposing sanctions against Iran, which could affect the country's oil and gas trade.
Trump has criticized the deal and has said that unless European allies fix the "flaws” in the Iran nuclear deal by May 12, he will refuse to extend US sanctions relief on oil-producing Iran.
