Iran signed a four-month deal to supply natural gas to Georgia as officials met in Tehran this week.
The country's first vice-president Eshaq Jahangiri said Iran is ready to export natural gas to Georgia through Azerbaijan or Armenia, Shana news agency reported.
Georgian and Iranian delegations in Tehran signed a deal for Iran to export of 4 million cubic meters of gas but the agreement is conditional upon banking clearance between the two countries, Jahangiri said.
The gas export deal to Georgia could be finalised within a month, according to Gholamreza Bagheri Moghaddam, the head of General Department of CIS and Caucasus Countries of the Foreign Ministry of Iran.
Bagheri said Georgia has purchased Iranian gas, but it has not yet been imported from Iran.
"Georgia stated that it will start implementing gas imports deal within a month," the head of the department said, according to Iranian media reports.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited Tbilisi on April 18, heading a delegation of 20 companies and businessmen representing Iran's public and private sector.
In July 2016, Ali Reza Kameli, managing director of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) confirmed that Tehran has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Georgian International Energy Corporation to export gas to the country within a 4-month period.
Almost 40 million cubic meters of gas will be sold to the company under the test agreement.
Currently, Azerbaijan is the main supplier of gas to Georgia. Small volumes are also supplied from Russia.
