Head of the Facilities for Measurement of Iranian Gas Exports to Turkey Sadegh Akbarpour told Shana that Turkish Butas Company had announced Thursday night that it cannot receive gas from Iran due to certain problems.

The Iranian official said the 8th district for gas transfer operations has announced readiness to remove the problems.
