Pakistan's leader said on Monday he supports building a pipeline that would carry gas from Iran to Pakistan and India-- a project the US has opposed.
Pakistan needs more gas because the nation's economy has become stronger in the past two years, President Gen Pervez Musharraf told a visiting group of journalists from the US and Asia.
"Pakistan wants gas. Iran wants to sell it. What is the problem?" Musharraf said.
