Pakistan Refuses to Work on Gas Pipeline Project With Iran – Report

Pakistan on Friday informed the Iranian regime in writing that it cannot execute the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project as long as Tehran is under United States sanctions, Arab News reported.

“Under present US sanctions on Iran, it is impossible to execute the IP gas pipeline project and we have conveyed it to them [Iran] in writing recently,” Mobin Saulat, the managing director of Inter State Gas Systems told Arab News.

The company, which falls under the Pakistani Ministry of Energy’s Petroleum Division, has been mandated by the Pakistani government to develop natural gas import projects, including the Iran-Pakistan pipeline.
