Iranian Fuel to Georgia

o MOSCOW (MT) - Iran on Wednesday agreed to sell gas to Georgia and signed a wide range of cooperation agreements during a visit to Tehran by Georgian leader Eduard Shevarnadze, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The Transcaucasian state is looking for alternative sources of fuel after fighting in Georgia's rebel region of Abkhazia blocked transport links to Russia, effectively cutting Georgia off from its traditional supplier of energy.
