  • Iran ready to help restore energy security to Europe: Deputy FM

The Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister highlights the dangers facing energy security in Europe amid the Russian war in Ukraine, saying Tehran, along with other energy providers, is ready to share its actual and potential capacities to help restore security to the energy market.

According to Press TV, Ali Bagheri Kani made the remarks in a meeting with a group of business people and managers of Hungarian companies in Budapest on Wednesday.

He added that the continuation of war in Europe has endangered energy security in this part of the world.

"It was thought for many years that countries like Iran should pay the cost of being sanctioned [but] now the Europeans have realized that imposing sanctions has also a price," said Bagheri Kani, who is the chief negotiator in the talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal.

He warned that the Europeans will have to pay the price of imposing sanctions by increasing inflation and jeopardizing energy security if they fail to revise their unilateral policies.
