After two years of slump, India has offered to resume talks with Iran next week on importing gas through a gas pipeline through Pakistan, but Tehran has yet to respond to the offer. Due to fears about the attack on the Beluch gas pipeline, another sea route from Iran to the maritime border between India and Pakistan off Kutch has been proposed. According to this proposal, one branch was to march towards Pakistan, while another branch was to march towards Kutch.   Similarly, Cabinet approved the cooperation agreement on January 30, 2013. However, on March 17, 2014, the Iranian government unilaterally withdrew from the cooperation agreement between the governments and, as a result, Pakistan sent on March 29, 2014 to the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) the notification of force majeure and/or apology, in accordance with the IP-GSPA. The Pakistani side has “taken a position that these conditions of force majeure and apology events still exist, so that ip-GSPA obligations remain suspended.” Talks between the Iranian and Pakistani governments began in 1995.  A provisional agreement was signed in 1995. The agreement provided for the construction of a gas pipeline from South Pars to Karachi, Pakistan. Subsequently, Iran offered to extend the gas pipeline between Pakistan and India. A provisional agreement was signed between Iran and India in February 1999.  Sources also indicated that the federal cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan had already been authorized with Iran.
You said that the signing of the agreement is scheduled for August 26, 2019 and that the current Director General of the ISGS will sign this agreement on behalf of the Government of Pakistan. However, the dates will be revised and the signing will take place next week. And the one-time permission to travel abroad is given to the Md ISGS, as the Interior Ministry has been asked to do so for the benefit of a greater national interest, sources said. In February, Iran sent a formal letter to Pakistan and said it would take legal action if Pakistan withdraws from the gas pipeline deal. In late October 2013, the Sustainable Policy Development Institute published a report calling the gas pipeline project Pakistan`s “death sentence.” As the contract`s prices are linked to crude oil prices, the government has “made a flagrant ignorance of the energy dynamics and its pricing while settling for this agreement”. Gas sold in Pakistan will be more expensive than the current domestic gas prices in the country.  Pakistan, Iran will sign a third agreement for the gas pipeline in Turkey next week “If Pakistan can attract foreign capital for the construction of its infrastructure in the energy sector, it will not be easy to carry out the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project,” he said. “U.S. sanctions are another factor forcing Pakistan to find a better alternative to Iran.” A high-level Pakistani delegation visited Iran on Sunday to seek deferred oil payments and conduct discussions to speed up the implementation of the Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline project, an oil ministry official said.
