Tehran says it has reached a deal with Kabul to supply Afghanistan with Iranian fuel oil.

Ali Reza Zeighami, managing director of the national Iranian refining and oil-products-distribution company, confirmed the deal in Tehran.

"It has been agreed that we will export up to 1 million tons of different oil products, gasoline, jet fuel, and gas every year to Afghanistan starting from next year," Zeighami told reporters. "This job has been done item by item since last year."

The agreement for Iran to supply Afghanistan with millions of tons of fuel oil, petroleum, and aviation fuel was reportedly brokered during a meeting between Afghan Trade and Industry Minister Anwar ul-Haq Ahady and Iranian Deputy Oil Minister Alireza Zeighami on December 26.
