|Pakistan should reject US pressure on IP gas pipeline project||
Pakistan should not come under U.S. pressure for abandoning the Pak-Iran Gas Pipeline Project as it is a sovereign country and has a sovereign right to sign bilateral agreement with another country, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) said.
It may be recalled that the U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan, Richard Olson has said that the United States continues to have reservations over the Pak-Iran gas pipeline but is willing to support any other measure to tackle the energy crisis in Pakistan. Talking to media at the Ulema Conference Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the government was not implementing the Parliament's guidelines for the Foreign policy of the country, therefore it has come under pressure of the United States.
