Iran calls on gas producers to work together despite market rivalries

Iran's oil minister says gas-producing countries should focus on their common interests, promoting greater use of the fuel and ensuring fair income, despite their rivalry in the market.

The Sunday remarks by Bijan Zanganeh come during the 15th ministerial meeting of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum, which includes giant producers such as Russia, Iran and Qatar, in Tehran.

Iran has huge gas resources but exports comparatively little.
