Islamabad, Nov 30, IRNA – Prime Minister of Pakistan Mohammad Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday afternoon that Islamabad is working on Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline plan.
  Nawaz Sharif, by underlining the dire need of his country to energy, said completion of Iran gas pipeline plan is an effective step toward decreasing shortage of energy in Pakistan.

Pakistan Minister of Commerce Khurram Dastgir Khan had said on Friday that construction plan of Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline is to be completed during the current government of Islamabad.
