    Sir, the article mentions that the sanctions are waived on countries who are in the process of reducing the dependence on Iranian Oil. The countries include India , Japan and EU. Dont know about china.
    what if China reduces the net dependency on Iranian oil YoY but funds Iran-Pakistan pipeline and later its extension to China can she be sanctioned as theoretically dependency is reduced.( classified only as alternate route)
    But China gains massively as it gets alternate route for supply of gas without going through Indian ocean so giant leap in energy security.

    Also Sir it remains to be seen whether through this project net dependency of Pakistan increases or not? if increases then it can be sanctioned but if advantages for China are massive then She will bail Pakistan out otherwise future of the project is not so bright.

    Sir your take on this?

    US is known to bend their own rules for short term benefits... Don't expect Obama to do anything to against pak, they still need the supply routes through pak. Even if US put sanctions, they themselves will make up for it in aids.

    Forget about China... China owns US.

    Please don't 'Sir' me. I'm a normal poster just like you.

    My assessment is that nothing is going to happen on Iran-Pakistan pipeline. Neither of them have the money to complete the pipeline. The news of Chinese funding the pipeline came from Pakistani side which is known to lie a lot to its public, so I won't take that piece of news as seriously. Its just a gimmick which serves both Iran government and Pakistan government to show it to their people that something is being done. Mere smoke and mirrors.

    Dont you guys feel ashamed to always ask the US for money ? Its really funny how Pakistanis DEMAND and actually believe that its the US taxpayers responsibility to support the otherwise great state of Pakistan. Why do you guys always take to blackmailing the US .... why dont you guys instead ask your great ally China to bail you out ?
