What about Iran-Pakistan pipeline?
But Iran is the enemy of the Sunnis.

Vladimir Putin says a gas pipeline between Pakistan and Russia is part of already existing infrastructure

View attachment 879301
In a major development, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday told Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif that the installation of a pipeline for the supply of gas to Pakistan from Moscow is possible.

The remarks came during a meeting between PM Shahbaz and Russian President Putin in Samarkand on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Uzbekistan.


During the meeting, matters of mutual interests, bilateral relations between the two countries, and other issues were discussed.

Putin also said that a gas pipeline between Pakistan and Russia was part of the already existing infrastructure.

PM Shahbaz Sharif lands in Uzbekistan

Earlier today, PM Shahbaz reached Uzbekistan on a two-day visit to attend the annual meeting of the SCO's Council of Heads of State (CHS).

The premier will attend the SCO summit scheduled to be held on September 15-16 at the invitation of Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev. The CHS is the highest forum at the SCO, which considers and defines the strategy, prospects and priorities of the organisation.

During the meeting, the SCO leaders will deliberate on important global and regional issues, including climate change, food security energy security, and sustainable supply chains.

They would also approve agreements and documents that would chart the future direction of cooperation among SCO member states.

Besides attending the summit, the prime minister would hold bilateral meetings with other participating leaders on the sidelines of the Council of Heads of State meeting.
I am glad the Russians have wisened up about this matter.

Russia needs a impartial diplomacy when dealing with both Pakistan and India.

Does the pipeline necessarily needs to get through the whole Afghanistan, i mean Wakhan Corridor can be exploited and it can be secured easily due to narrow width, just pay the royality and security of it should be in our hands

To me, that clearly means there is no current pipeline that can be used to get Russian gas to Pakistan, as was claimed.

Gas deposits are in central asia, NOT Russia proper.

What Putin was suggesting was letting Gazprom be fuel supplier to Pakistan.

So Showbaaz met Putler and discussed economic matters. Then IK sb's theory that he was booted out because of Russian ties doesnt hold water?

Regards

Wrong,
We don't need gas for long term to be utilized in Pakistan.

Hi,

Our media misquoted.

Putin says pipeline gas supplies from Russia to Pakistan possible

But "the Afghan issue" have to be solved first, the president notes

SAMARKAND, September 15. /TASS/. Russia can supply gas to Pakistan, with part of infrastructure ready, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif on the sidelines of the SCO summit in Samarkand on Thursday, adding though that there is an issue of stability in Afghanistan.

"The issue is about pipeline gas supplies from Russia to Pakistan, which is also possible, which means part of infrastructure has already been created, meaning Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan. We have to solve the Afghan issue," Putin said when speaking about energy projects.

"Of course, there are problems connected with political stability, but having in mind our mutually good relations with the Afghan people, I hope this problem can also be solved, I mean Pakistan’s influence on the situation in the country," he added.

Overall, Moscow and Islamabad have other very interesting and ambitious projects, particularly in the energy sector, the Russian president noted. He also mentioned the Pakistani Stream project, which suggests the creation of infrastructure for supplies of liquified natural gas.

I don't understand Iran is a neighbor to you. Why don't you buy petrol/Diesel illegally if not legally through Government. If Sanctions you are afraid of then you should have completed gas pipeline at least 2 decades back. You can get sanctions while having a deal with Russia then why not through the neighbor.
Our gas has Shia molecules floating in that pipeline.

Jokes aside, i hope at least they make TAPI operational with Russian aid.

Pakistan needs safe and stable way of importing natural gas. The sooner the better

We don t believe in the national interest and public welfare..... we protect others' interests, doesn't matter if our nation dies of hunger.
When leaders dirty money parked in foreign countries then easy to buy their loyalty ......

Can't do,
The saudis will pressure us out of it by using the oil leverage.
The americans will pressure us by F-16 leverage.
The Europeans will pressure us through SWIFT

Not sure about Shia molecules, but the Shia fanatics definitely yes.
Iran government ( not people) have a track record of doing that.
