Iran’s Rouhani says can provide Pakistan gas through pipeline within months


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that Iran had completed work on its side of a much-delayed pipeline pumping natural gas to Pakistan and would be in a position to provide gas to its energy-starved neighbour in a few months.

Rouhani spoke at a news conference while in Pakistan for two days of talks focused on increasing Pakistan’s electricity imports from Iran, boosting trade relations and reviving plans for a pipeline between the two countries.
