KARACHI: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani asserted on Saturday that Pakistan will make the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline, while speaking to the media in Karachi.

Pakistan is currently facing mounting pressure from the US to shelve the Iran pipeline project, while Pakistan and Iran have already signed a sovereign-guarantee agreement on the project.

The prime minister said that a rise in oil prices in Pakistan was due to a rise in the international prices and the global recession, and gave his assurance that the Speaker had formed a committee on the issue and will hold talks with the finance minister.

Premier Gilani also commented on the US Congressman’s resolution in the House on the Balochistan issue, and said that it was against the sovereignty of the country. “We strongly condemn the US Congressman’s move,” he said.

In view of the on-going trilateral meeting between Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan, Gilani said that it was “extremely important” for the stability of the region that all the neighbouring countries were in a good relationship with each other.

“We want to have good relations with all our neighbours, be it China, Afghanistan, Iran or India,” he added.

@Ahmer Ali US’ forces don’t have courage,bravery and faith and the most ever worst defeat in Afghanistan of USA is the live example of it.

I agree with you, 90,000 American soldiers surrendered to Taliban fighters. Jokes apart. Americans have killed most Taliban/ alqaeda leaders. Ruled Afghanistan for 10 years and control the streets while Taliban wait in the caves waiting for the americans to go so that they can go out and kill some unarmed people. Only Pakistani's can say the taliban 'won'.

How many american leaders has Taliban killed??Osama was shot dead like some kind of animal and thrown into the sea.If this Is this how Taliban/ al Qaeda WIN. Then Taliban losing must be really something
