- January 21, 2013 - Updated 1814 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said Monday that despite sanctions on Iran, there was progress on Pak-Iran gas pipeline project.


During the National Assembly session, Khar said funding for the gas pipeline project was a huge challenge. Pakistan required $1.5 billion to construct the 781 kilometer pipeline needed to be built for the project.


The foreign minister added that talks were ongoing with Iran to solve the financial constraints.

Hina Rabbani, reallllyyyy...oh so that was the reason, is that yet another scheme to skim money from the sincere Iranian gas pipeline, you guys including you personally lie like dogs, instead of refusing to bow out of project at the behest of the hegemonic godfather of world, you are making stupid excuses a 3rd grader wouldnt even, yet you guys still trying to skim money outof Iran to find the pipeline, thats why the nation should not reelect you or the pther two joker clowns

Pakistans present ruling party has no guts no roots this NRO based rag tag so called government would rather plunder the National exchecquer than making a solid decesion of thi s magnitude, for after all most of them wpuld flee to Amreeka once thrown outof power..everyone knows we nee d gas and other energy sources

I hope that this pipeline goes ahead. For many, many reasons. Peace to my country and this region.

There was progress and then you spineless midgets bogged down under the pressure from foreign power. Shame on you for misleading the nation.

Pakistan must build the pipeline simply to show that it can withstand the American pressure. Besides, the country is desperate for acquiring energy from all sources. Enough delay has occured, just get on with the pipeline.
