Iran Rice import planned
IranMania News
Iran's consul general in Karachi said Friday that talks have been held with Pakistan on the purchase of 20,000 tons of rice from that country.
Seyyed Mousa Hosseini told Fars news agency that huge amounts of rice are currently smuggled from Pakistan to Iran's eastern border provinces of Khorasan and Sistan- Baluchestan.
"At present, Pakistani rice plays a substantial role in the food basket of the people in Khorasan and Sistan-Baluchestan," he maintained, stressing that Pakistan is willing to also export fruits to Iran. The diplomat further noted that the 'Pakistani side has been convinced that the export of fruits, rice or any other product must be done in the frameworks of the Iranian standards'.
He said the Indo-Pak tension is the only barrier to implementing the project to export natural gas to India via Pakistan. "The Indian side believes that the project will be affected by the tensions between the two countries and will jeopardize New Delhi's longterm interests, whereas the Pakistani side has pledged to ensure the security of the pipeline and recognize the project as an official undertaking," he said, stressing that the Indian and the Pakistani sides have had positive talks on the issue.
He said it is impossible to give an exact date for the start of the high-profile project, which will help supply a portion of the ever-increasing gas demand in Pakistan and, particularly, in India.
