India To Build Gas Pipeline To Iran

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Regime Change Iran)

NEW DELHI: India will not be deterred by U.S. opposition to a multi-billion dollar gas pipeline from Iran through Pakistan as it is imperative to meet the country's growing energy needs, the foreign minister said in a report Saturday.

"Our energy needs are going to increase exponentially in the next 20 years and there's no other way but to have this kind of an arrangement," Foreign Minister Natwar Singh said in an interview with The Hindu newspaper.

The pipeline will cost about $4.5 billion and was held up due to the fact that India and Pakistan were at the brink of a nuclear war with each other. Washington is not very happy with the idea as Iran is informing the E.U. that it is not seeing much progress with the talks with considerations towards ending them.

The U.S. is recognizing India's energy needs as the nation tries to support it's ever increasing population. Discussions are up in the air about the possibility of civilian nuclear power plants in the region although India seems determined to push through with the pipeline idea regardless how America feels.

With Iran already sanctioned by much of the world, adding a new customer to it's economy may make any U.N. sanctions "irrelevant." With Iran persistent on building nuclear power plants within it's borders, military strikes may be the last viable solution left on the table for the U.S. and it's allies.
