Iran keen on gas pipeline but asks India to hurry - Yahoo! India News "Iran has said that it is still keen for India to join the Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline project, but has hinted that New Delhi should hurry up and resolve matters as the 'structure' of the project can change in the future. Visiting Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said work has already started in Iran to lay the pipeline as a bila-teral project with Pakistan, but the door is still open for India. Making it clear that India was welcome to join the project, Mottaki hinted that New Delhi should take a decision soon as Iran could enter into agreements with other countries in the region. He said that 100 km of the pipeline has already been put up in Iran and Pakistan has also started working on the project on its side of the border. "When you consider this pipeline bilaterally, there is a definite capacity involved. If we make commitments with other partners, with other pipelines, to other regions, in such a case maybe in the future the structure of the project may change. I do hope to have Indian participation as soon as possible," Mottaki said. New Delhi is concerned about the security of the proposed pipeline given that it passes through some of the most troubled regions in Pakistan. There are also differences on the transit fees that Pakistan is demanding for gas that is to be pumped to India." Is it safe to make the pipeline project via pakistan in present situation? i dont think it is better idea.
