TEHRAN - Seeking more discounted tariff, a Pakistani delegation will be meeting today (Monday) with Iranian officials to deliberate over factors relating to finalisation of Pak-Iran Gas Pipeline. 

Pakistan will be discussing with Iran finalisation of a deal worth billions of dollars, which will include lowering of tariff and possibility of extension in deadline for completing Pakistan’s part of the pipeline.

Iran has already completed its part of 900 kilometers of pipeline, and is waiting for Pakistan to complete its part of 700 kilometers.

Iranian media is touting the project as a source of major relief for Pakistani masses’ need of gas energy while Pakistan is keen to get more discount in tariff following India’s exit from the project.
