He added that Greece also seeks to provide a gateway for Iran to supply fuel to other parts of Europe, Iran's SHANA news agency reported.

"What's sure is that Iran wants to start selling its natural gas in liquefied form using ships and is interested in Greece," Skourletis said.

"Iran is considering both the Revythousa re-gasification terminal near Athens and a planned facility at Alexandroupolis in the north of the country 'for exporting to Europe," the Greek minister added.
