Pakistan says it will buy gas from Iran after two years
Tehran, Iran: Pakistan will buy gas from Iran after two years. Iran says that Iran Pakistan Gas Pipeline known as IP Gas Pipeline project is not dead yet and Pakistan has asked Iran for two more years to buy gas from Iran.
This was said by Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh on Tuesday while talking to reporters on the sidelines of an economic forum in Tehran.
“The Pakistanis have asked for a two-year extension of the deadline and we have not rejected their demand; some legal negotiations are, of course, needed between the two sides,” Zanganeh added.
“Pakistani government has presented a new proposal to the Iranian Oil Ministry for the settlement of a dispute over the implementation of Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline project. In their proposals, the Pakistanis have offered different solutions for accelerating the construction of IP pipeline and have demanded action on the issue. The details of the proposal are being studied,” said Majedi.
