India and Pakistan will discuss the price of gas they plan to import from Iran through a proposed pipeline when the three nations meet to discuss the seven-billion-dollar project next week.
"We will discuss gas pricing, project structure and the tripartite government-to-government framework agreement," Petroleum Secretary MS Srinivasan told reporters here.
"This is the first time we will be discussing the price," Srinivasan said. The meeting will be held in Tehran from March 13-15.
So far the pipeline discussions have centred on technical, commercial, financial, legal and other project-related issues.
Pakistan would collect transit fees and India would get badly needed energy to help meet the demand of its booming economy.
