Pakistan rejects US objections on Iran gas pipeline

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said that Pakistan’s sovereignty should be respected and that no decision would be made against national interest.

Speaking to reporters, Khar said that gas pipeline and other projects with Iran would be pursued and completed irrespective of any foreign pressure.

“The projects are in the national interest of Pakistan” Khar said.

Khar added that Parliament would decide on resuming Nato supplies and the status of future relations with the US, ISAF and Nato would be decided by the parliamentary committee.

“US official expressed regret over the Nato attack on the Salala checkpost,” she said.

On trade ties with India, Khar said this did not mean that the Kashmir issue was being pushed into the background.
