Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline
Tehran - FNA

Former Pakistani minister of information and mass-media broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira stressed that the best choice for his country to supply its needed energy is accomplishing the Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline.
"If there had been another way to meet Pakistan's energy requirements other than the peace pipeline, the (Pakistan's) People Party would have surely chosen that; hence, Iran's gas is the best option to supply the needed energy of the Pakistani people," Kaira told FNA.
He said the former Pakistani government signed a contract with Tehran to import its needed gas from Iran and the current government should work on the implementation of the project.
Yet, he said that Pakistan has not stopped the project and there is already some progress made in Pakistani portion of IP gas pipeline.
Iran wants to export its natural gas to Pakistan, India and China through the peace pipeline.
Iran has already built its 900-kilometer share of the pipeline on its own soil and is waiting for the 700-kilometer Pakistani side of the pipeline to be built.
Iran and Pakistan signed an agreement over the construction of a gas pipeline in 1995. Later, Iran made a proposal to extend the pipeline from Pakistan into India. In February 1999, an accord between Iran and India was signed.
But due to the US pressure, India withdrew from the project in 2009, and Islamabad has also delayed accomplishing the project so far.
A Pakistani delegation presided by Oil Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi arrived in Tehran last Monday to discuss expediting the implementation of the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline.
The delegation was expected to present new proposals to the Iranian side on the IP gas pipeline.
Abbasi also conferred on the latest developments related to the implementation of the project with his Iranian counterpart Bijan Namdar Zanganeh in Tehran on Tuesday.
