Islamabad, Apr 27: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will meet President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani during a four-hour stopover in Islamabad on Monday. According to a Daily Times report, they will discuss the Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) gas pipeline project, though no related documents will be signed.
Iran's Ambassador Masha'allah Shakeri told reporters here that the Iranian delegation accompanying Ahmadinejad would include the country's foreign minister, commerce minister and his key aides. Sahkeri also welcomed China's interest in importing gas from Iran through Pakistan, saying increased international involvement would contribute to the project's viability. However, he said the IPI project was a trilateral and a separate project might be needed if China were to be included.
