US May Enforce Economic Sanctions Against Pakistan

The US State Department may enforce economic sanctions against Pakistan over the multi-billion-dollar Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project, a new report says.

The Voice of America report said Tuesday that the USD5 billion project, which is intended to carry natural gas from Iran to its eastern neighbor to help reduce Pakistan’s crushing energy deficit, has become a major concern for the US government.

That [the IP project] is of concern to the United States, which is backing international sanctions against Iranian energy exports because of its nuclear program,” the report said.

The report added that there has been a considerable progress on the Iran-to-Pakistan “peace pipeline,” with Iranian contractors starting work on Pakistani sections of the project, after finishing nearly 900 kilometers of the pipeline in Iran.
