Paks Push Further Alliance With Iran - "We Should Strengthen Our Trade And Economic Ties"

February 6, 2012

February 6, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a development highlighted by Iran's Fars News Agency [see, Pakistan Eager To Further Increase Energy Cooperation With Iran, http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9010173838], the increasingly rogue Pak government recently declared its intentions to solidify its "relationship" with Iran's Islamic dictatorship as the West seemingly heads in the opposite direction, preparing for military conflict.

"During the meeting on Monday, the minister suggested that Iran and Pakistan should strengthen their trade and economic ties...Iran and Pakistan enjoy strong brotherly relations and their historic relationship provide basis for strong economic ties. 'We are close religiously, geographically and culturally, we should strengthen our trade and economic ties,' added the minister."

The planned cooperation would include assistance in constructing a gas pipeline which would help deal with Pakistan's chronic energy shortage as well as generating much needed cash for Iran's outlaw regime.

Such cooperation will have the additional effect of helping to strengthen Iran's will to resist Western pressure on the Mullocracy to de-nuclearize. The deal also carries political consequences, further demonstrating where Pakistani interests lie, which certainly isn't with the United States.
