"Pepe Escobar: Asian countries create interdependent energy economy with Iran, despite US opposition
Tuesday April 29th, 2008
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has met with Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf, and the prime minister, Raza Gilani, to discuss the construction of a gas pipeline from Iran to India. The Real News analyst Pepe Escobar calls this "one of the most important energy developments of 2008," because it shows that Asian countries that have good relations with the US, such as India and Pakistan, are willing to do business with Iran, despite Washington's attempts to isolate the country."
