Iran urges Pakistan to complete delayed gas pipeline

Iran’s foreign minister called on Pakistan to finish its portion of a long-delayed gas pipeline between the two nations.

The multi-billion project has been on hold since 2014, with opposition from Washington due to concerns about violating sanctions on Iran’s nuclear program. During a three-day visit to Islamabad, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian discussed the matter in a televised news conference with his Pakistani counterpart, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.Iran's top diplomat urges Pakistan to complete its part of a long-delayed  Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline

Amirabdollahian expressed strong belief in the significant benefits the completion of the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline would bring to both nations. The project, initiated in 2013, required Pakistan to finish constructing its part of the pipeline by the end of 2014.

However, the work came to a halt, leading to frustration from Tehran, which had already invested $2 billion on its side of the border.

During their meeting, the two foreign ministers also discussed various bilateral issues, including enhancing security along their shared border.

The pipeline project was originally launched by Asif Ali Zardari, the father of Bhutto Zardari, who was the President at that time.
