Iran denies new gas agreement with Pakistan

TEHRAN Dec 30 (Shana)–Iran’s Petroleum Ministry has dismissed allegations of a new agreement with its eastern neighbor Pakistan on an incomplete gas pipeline project.
“New agreements on Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline are not true,” Iran’s Petroleum Ministry said.

It was reacting to remarks by some Pakistani officials that new accords have been reached between Tehran and Islamabad on the much-delayed gas pipeline.

Iran has built its own section of the gas pipeline stretching from the giant South Pars gas field, but Pakistan has not met its obligations for its own section of the pipeline.

Pakistan desperately needs Iran’s gas to feed its power plants and resolve its loadshedding particularly during summer.
