ISLAMABAD: Following the lifting of sanctions, Iran President Hassan Rouhani is set to visit Pakistan by the end of this month to push for the Iran-Pakistan (IP) gas pipeline project.

The project was to be commissioned in December 2014, but work was stalled after sanctions were placed on Tehran.

Officials now say that there are hopes that the project could be implemented.
