Iran’s NIGC still hopeful of gas deal with Pakistan

Financial Tribune – The National Iranian Gas Company does not intend to file a lawsuit against Pakistan in the International Court of Arbitration for not completing the Iran-Pakistan (IP) Pipeline on its territory, the head of the company said.

“Penalizing Islamabad in not on the agenda. We believe in constructive interaction and are waiting for Pakistan [to fulfill its part of the deal] complete the pipeline,” Hassan Montazer-Torbati was quoted as saying by ILNA on Monday.

Expressing hope that the pipeline can be completed soon, he said NIGC is ready to supply the energy-hungry neighbor with the much-needed gas whenever the infrastructure is in place.
