Iran, India to study gas pipeline through Pakistan

TEHRAN, May 24 (AFP) - Iran and India have agreed to carry out technical studies for a gas pipeline linking their countries via Pakistan, Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi said in remarks reported Wednesday.

Kharazi was quoted by the financial press that he and Indian Foreign Minister Jaswant Singh held "very useful and concrete" talks on the pipeline.

The decision to study the pipeline came at the end of the joint Iranian-Indian economic committee's meetings Monday and Tuesday.

The committee agreed to create a panel to study "the project in its various political, economic, technical and security aspects."

India also wants to buy Iranian petrochemical products, the press reported. Pakistan, India's long-time enemy, has assured Iran of its complete support for the pipeline.

Singh met Monday with President Mohammad Khatami, who called for close cooperation between their countries.

The Indian minister has been visiting Iran since Friday.
