    "The huge gas pipeline project and transfer of Iran's electricity and oil to Pakistan will stand atop (the agenda)," Gilani said in a meeting with Iran's Acting Deputy Foreign Minister Amir Mansour Borqaei in Islamabad.

    During the meeting, the two sides also discussed the political situation in the region, joint projects, mutual cooperation and bilateral ties.

    Gilani also accepted an invitation extended by Iranian officials for a visit to Tehran, and said that the joint economic commission meeting due to be held in August will be an outstanding step towards mutual cooperation.

    In March, Tehran and Islamabad signed a final agreement to launch implementation of a project for exporting Iran's rich gas reserves to the energy-hungry south-Asian nation.

    The 2700-kilometer long pipeline was originally to supply gas for Pakistan and India which are suffering a lack of energy sources, but India later evaded the talks. Last year Iran and Pakistan declared they would finalize the agreement bilaterally if India continued to be absent in the meetings.

    In a major breakthrough on March 20, 2009, the Pakistani government approved Iran's proposed pricing formula for gas supplies to the South Asian nation.

    Tehran and Islamabad eventually signed a final agreement on the construction of the pipeline and start of supplies in Turkey last year.

    According to the project proposal, the pipeline will begin from Iran's Assalouyeh Energy Zone in the south and stretch over 1,100 km through Iran. In Pakistan, it will pass through Baluchistan and Sindh but officials now say the route may be changed if China agrees to the project.

    The gas will be supplied from the South Pars field. The initial capacity of the pipeline will be 22 billion cubic meters of natural gas per annum, which is expected to be later raised to 55 billion cubic meters. It is expected to cost $7.4 billion.
