Iran resumed natural gas exports to Turkey yesterday after an eight-day halt requested by Turkey over technical reasons, the Iranian semi-official Mehr news agency reported. \"After Turkey announced its readiness, Iran resumed the flow of natural gas on Friday afternoon,\" Mehr said. Iranian media reported on Tuesday that the country may demand compensation from Turkey over what it considers unacceptable delays in repairing a pipeline carrying Iranian gas. Officials denied the reports. On Sunday, National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) managing director Javad Oji was quoted as saying by daily newspaper Iran that Kurdish rebels had blown up the pipeline, forcing its fourth closure this year.
