TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says his country intends to increase production from a giant gas field shared with neighboring Qatar.

The Sunday report by state TV quotes Rouhani as saying Iran that intends to match Qatar's production by 2017.

Rouhani said Iran will use the additional production from the South Pars field — known as North Dome in Qatar — to "develop" Iran.

Iran's media says Qatar's current gas production from the field is about 1 1/2 times that of Iran's.
