Jan 30 Iran has cancelled an oil conference in
London next month, when Tehran was expected to reveal its new
oil and gas contracts to investors, apparently over a delay in
getting visas, the Seda weekly on Saturday quoted a senior
Iranian official as saying.
The deputy head of National Iranian Oil Co. also said
foreign companies would be invited in May to bid for new oil
"The London conference has been cancelled because the
British embassy in Tehran could not issue visas for
representatives of Iranian companies as its visa section has yet
to become active," Ali Kardor told the weekly. "And they had to
acquire their visas from a third country."
