Pak PM ignores US warning on Iran gas deal, to go ahead with gas import

ISLAMABAD: Defying a warning from Washington, Pakistan's prime minister promised Tuesday to go ahead with a plan to import natural gas from Iran even if the U.S. levies additional sanctions against the Mideast country.

Iran, India and Pakistan have been talking about this pipeline for years and with the upcoming sanctions almost in place, Pakistan's PM is saying they are not obligated to follow unilateral US sanctions, so they are going ahead with their gas pipeline with Iran.

I still doubt it will be built unless/until they get what they want from Iran.

I think this begs the question; why does the US government think it can dictate world policy?

If this is indeed true, I say good on Pakistan for standing up to the US war machine.
