Iran has stopped supplying natural gas to Turkey to meet increasing demand at home this winter, state-run radio reported on Wednesday. "Unfortunately, we stopped supplying gas to Turkey while having a contract with them to meet domestic demand that was rising due to the cold weather," state-run radio quoted Iran's oil minister, Kazem Vaziri Hamaneh, as saying. Hamaneh did not give a timeline for when Iran - a major supplier of natural gas to Turkey along with Russia - would start resupplying Turkey with natural gas. But the oil minister encouraged Iranians to take measures to reduce their consumption of natural gas, the radio said.
