Iran ‘committed to India pipeline’


NEW DELHI, Dec 29 (Reuters): Iran remains committed to a proposed $7 billion natural gas pipeline running to India via Pakistan, its deputy oil minister said today.
"We will continue to do our best to implement it," Mohammad Hadi Nejad-Hosseinian told reporters at a news conference.
The pipeline faces opposition from the United States which accuses Iran of seeking nuclear arms, funding anti-Israeli militias and stirring militant attacks against US forces in Iraq.
