According to the Finance Ministery of the Taliban, the contract has been signed in order to reduce the price of fuel in Afghanistan.

Earlier, a high-ranking Afghan delegation had traveled to Iran to discuss oil purchases, price, and transit of petroleum products to Afghanistan, the Taliban Ministry of Finance reported.

According to the ministry, a joint committee has been also formed to sign CNG contracts, construct petroleum pipelines for Afghanistan, as well as long-term contracts.

The report comes as the price of gasoline and fuel has unprecedentedly increased in Afghanistan's energy market.
