Iran-Pakistan pipeline needs third party – Zanganeh

By Staff reporter 5 September 2017

A third party is needed to take part in the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline to ensure Islamabad makes payments for Iran’s gas, according to Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zanganeh.

“I believe that Iran will finally send its gas to Pakistan, but considering the lessons I have learned about this issue over the years, I think a third party would be needed for financing and completing Pakistan’s share of the project,” he told reporters.
