Jul 04, 2001 02:00 AM

Pakistan has confirmed that it would be pushing for a discussion on the proposed India-Iran gas pipeline, to be laid through the country, during the forthcoming Indo-Pak summit. The proposed Iran-India gas pipeline project is on the agenda of upcoming Pakistan-India summit, Pakistan Petroleum Minster Usman Aminuddin said at Pakistan embassy in Washington.
He added that the Pakistani Petroleum Ministry had already sent a comprehensive summary on the pipeline project to Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf. He said Islamabad was interested in the project as the country would immensely benefit from it, adding besides the foreign investment amounting to $ 700 mm the project would enable Pakistan to get gas for its own use in case of shortage or for export in case of surplus. The current gap between supply and demand of the gas was about 0.2 bn cubic feet, he said.
