US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has warned Pakistan that the Iran gas pipeline project is inexplicable and could invoke US sanctions that would further undermine Pakistan’s already shaky economy. This is the worst example for violating the international law. This is another attack on the sovereignty of Pakistan by the US. The US should know that Pakistan is facing energy crisis. Our economy is not improving due to energy crisis. Pakistan and Iran are two brotherly countries. If Iran wants to help Pakistan for resolving energy crisis, it is good for both the countries. A common man in Pakistan asks what the justification is for the US to warn Pakistan.
I advise to the government to go ahead with gas pipeline without taking US pressure. I also advise the US authorities for respecting the sovereignty of two independent countries.
