A high-level Pakistani delegation led by its Petroleum Minister Amanullah Khan Jadoon arrived in New Delhi on Thursday to hold talks on the over-$7 billion Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline.
Jadoon will meet India's Petroleum Minister Murli Deora on Friday afternoon to discuss project structure and pricing of gas, official sources said.
The meet between the two countries which will import gas from Iran through the over 2,100-km long pipeline is a precursor to a trilateral meeting between the three sides in March-April.
Also to be discussed during the visit would be diesel exports by Indian Oil Corp (IOC) to Pakistan.
