Iran to supply gas to Europe via Syria

Iranian Deputy Oil Minister Javad Oji announced on Thursday that Iran and Syria have signed an agreement to build an "Islamic gas pipeline" to transfer Iran's natural gas to Europe.

The gas pipeline to Europe will pass through Iran, Iraq, Syria, southern Lebanon, the Mediterranean basin, and will provide 110 million cubic meters of natural gas, per day, to Europe. The Pipeline will also provide Iraq and Syria with additional sources of energy.

Just one more indication that Obama's no-nonsense foreign policy - including the weak sanctions imposed on Iran - is having the desired effect.
