US tries to influence IPI pipeline negotiations

Oct 26, 2007 02:00 AM

The US plans to urge India not to proceed with a gas pipeline project with Tehran.
US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson will recommend India not go ahead with the more than $ 7-bn project, which is to transfer Iranian natural gas to New Delhi via Pakistan, during his four-day trip to India.

US Treasury Undersecretary for International Affairs David McCormick told that the US hoped India would not move forward with the Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline. McCormick said his country thinks this would not be the right path during a time the world should be imposing greater discipline on its interactions with Iran.
India should meet its energy needs through a nuclear deal with the US that has been stalled, McCormick claimed.
