“In the absence of international sanctions the project can be completed within three years, but the government cannot take it any further at the moment because international sanctions against Iran are a serious issue,” Pakistani Petroleum Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said today. (NDTV, 25 February)
The agreement for the pipeline was signed in 2009. Former Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari and his then Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had announced the start of the project in February last year. Officials had said at the time it would be completed in 15 months.

Iran should seal its border with this mess called Pakistan. Iran does not need to sell Gas to these people they will not pay the money for sure anyways.
I totally agree with the post above. Let us understand the fact that Pakistan is a country that survives due to crisis. It creates crisis and then it sucks help, support and money both from the West and the East. It gets F-16 from US and then develops F-17 with China. It helps Iran getting centrifuge technology and then helps the Saudis do the same thing soon. It has strong bonds with the British but at the same time helps the Taliban to screw Western troops in Afghanistan. It is a matrix of mess and it only survives thanks to chaos and crisis it creates inside and also around itself. The world should deal with Pakistan more seriously, as a matter of fact US should focus more on Pakistan than it does on Iran.
agreed. but apparently anything said against this nation is treated as racist! Pakistan is not even a country
After Iran has refused to pay for the Paipeline in the Pakistan , The Pa Govenment said Sanction is important issue. bla- Bla
The Pakis can look for Money on the capital Market.
they can ask for example China to invest in the pippeline.
however I believe nobody want to invest the didater - Chaos Country Pakistan
And one wonders why pakistan is in such a mess,oh well,let the americans and saudis supply pakistan with the energy it needs or else let them sit in the dark,hopefully iran has learnt its lesson as far as deals with pakistan are concerned
Uskowi, are you allowing a racist term to be used in the post of Anonymous February 25, 2014 at 3:22 PM? This is what it means http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/Paki

It may be surprising to certain people Anonymous February 26, 2014 at 3:05 PM, but, it is possible to speak and write without using racist abuse! Why not give it a go?
Pakistan is as much a country as Iran or Iraq or Syria or Lebanon.... and has a more powerful military than does Iran.

Yeah..pity they cant afford to keep the lights on in Karachi,not to mention that the pakistani taliban seems to run whole swathes of the country
Anonymous February 25, 2014 at 3:11 PM, not anything, just racist words.
it may be surprising to you BMA that unlike you we live in a society that tolerates and ecourages free speech. it is called democracy. For someone who believes in sharia nonsense democracy has no value.
"we"? Is that a royal we? Since when is racist abuse free speech?
