Iran best option for Caspian outlet

Dec 17, 1998 01:00 AM

President Mohammad Khatami says Iran is likely to emerge as the main route for Central Asian oil and gas, despite U.S. efforts to seek alternate routes.
He said that European countries were seeking the best route and were unlikely to be swayed by the United States.
The United States has discouraged foreign spending in Iran's energy industry, and encouraged investments in Central Asia that seek to channel crude fuel by routes other than through Iran.
Yet energy experts say Iran is the most economical and viable outlet for oil and gas from Central Asia.
"Despite all the efforts by the United States and the Zionists to prevent transfer of the Central Asian energy to Europe and to open waters through Iran, I am of the belief that Iran would be the route for transfer of the energy," Khatami told Oil Ministry officials.
