Iran is Turkey's second-biggest supplier of natural gas after Russia and sells about 10 billion cubic meters a year of gas under a 25-year supply deal to Turkey which it uses for electricity generation.

Rahimpour touched on the two countries’ vision to boost trade to $30 billion, expressing hope that the two sides would take effective steps to achieve their goals by allocating appropriate facilities.
