Pakistan Ambassador to Iran Noor Muhammad Jadmani said that the Pakistani Prime Minister is going to travel to Tehran in the near future.
He asserted that Mian Nawaz Sharif’s trip will mostly concern economic cooperation, the Peace pipeline in particular.
"The trip will be made to strengthen the countries’ relations and to find ways to do so,” Jadmani said to Mehr News Agency.
He also pointed to the fifth Iranian border guard who was arrested by Jaish ul-Adl and said "There is no precise information about the fifth border guard. We didn’t gather any information about his being in any of the areas in Pakistan either.”
Pointing to the Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline he stated "As for the Peace pipeline, the Iranian and Pakistani governments are intent to accomplish the project. But there have been issues which have delayed the process; adding to that the fact that the design and research to be carried out before the project will turn operational are also time-taking. The two countries, though, are still intent to accomplish the project and they will continue cooperation to do that.”
An agreement made between Iran and Pakistan states that Iran will sell its gas at an agreed price to Pakistan and India for 25 years. The pipeline counts for the most economical way for India to energy resources. There have also been talks about Turkmenistan and Qatar to join Iran for supplying gas for the gigantic project.
