NEW DELHI:The proposed 2,700 KM gas pipeline between India and Iran will be on the agenda of Iran foreign minister Kamal Kharazi and his Indian counterpart Natwar Singh as both leaders meet in New Delhi.

Issues related to the security of the gas pipeline, that will pass through Pakistan will be discussed.

The talks assume importance in view of Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz's visit to Iran this week.

The Cabinet has, last week, authorised the Petroleum Ministry to hold negotiations with the countries concerned for the import of natural gas.
