US Warns Pakistan on Iran Pak Relation
ISLAMABAD: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that Pakistan could face damaging consequences if it goes ahead with the proposed Iran-Pakistan pipeline project.
“We have been very clear in pointing out the consequences of building this pipeline,” Clinton said while addressing the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Foreign Operations in Washington.
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a Congressman asking why the budget request for the State Department included a one billion dollar request to help Pakistan address its energy problems.
Clinton said that they supported the alternative of a pipeline via Turkmenistan.
