Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline

The U.S. opposes the pipeline.

Ahmedinejad left Pakistan Friday after meeting with Pakistan’s president Asif Ali Zardari and Afghan president Hamid Karzai, a trilateral summit seeking a formula to stabilize conditions in Afghanistan.

Karzai represents the part of Afghanistan that the U.S. supposedly had under control.

A joint statement issued by Pakistan’s foreign ministry after the meeting said the three countries agreed to “develop mutually beneficial cooperation in the energy, mining and minerals, agriculture and other sectors” without providing further details.

But an Iranian official in Islamabad who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity said, “The IP [Iran-Pakistan] gas pipeline is very close to our heart. President Ahmedinejad indicated Iran’s intent to finance the project on the Pakistani side if Pakistan has difficulty with finding the money”.
