The construction of a gas pipeline from Iran across Pakistan to India could help India and Pakistan to solve the Kashmir problem. As a Rosbalt correspondent reports, this was announced by Pakistani President Pervez Musharaff at a press conference in Moscow on Wednesday, February 5. Russian company Gazprom already has such a project at the development stage.
Mr Musharaff emphasised that Pakistan has always been in favour of such a project. He said that 'it would be in the interests of all three countries.' Mr Musharaff added that he had discussed the possibility of such a pipeline at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. 'In view of Russia's close relations with India and improving relations with Pakistan, Russian gas could come to play a key role in solving the Kashmir problem,' Mr Musharaff said.
Europe and Russia could come to an agreement on many issues if it had not been for such issues as Ukraine and Crimea.
