Iran's Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazzi arrives in India today on a three-day visit during which talks are expected to centre on India's fuel needs. Kharazzi will address an India-Iran Joint Business Council meeting Monday before he holds talks with his Indian counterpart Natwar Singh, an Indian Foreign Ministry statement said.
Kharazzi will also hold talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. The statement did not give details of the agenda for discussions, but diplomats and experts in India say they will centre around the prospects of importing gas from Iran.
Iran has 27.5 trillion cubic metres of gas reserves, while India currently requires 90 million cubic metres a day, projected to increase by more than four times over the next two decades.
