Pakistan will continue with a joint project with Iran on the construction of a gas pipeline between the two countries, Asim Hussain, an advisor to Pakistani prime minister, said on Sunday. Iran-Pakistan (IP) pipeline, projected to cost about $1.5 billion, would carry 21.5 million cubic meters of Iran’s natural gas to Pakistan on a daily basis. Iran has already built more than 900 kilometers of the pipeline on its soil.
