The Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline is a “top priority” for Islamabad, Pakistani website The News has reported Pakistani Petroleum Minister Ghulam Sarwar as saying.

Sarwar was talking to Iran’s ambassador to Pakistan, Mehdi Honardoost.

Pakistan’s previous government shelved the IP project in the wake of international objections, but Sarwar said he will not submit to “foreign pressure”.
