Iran and Pakistan have reached a deal to build a multi-billion-dollar pipeline to transport natural gas between the two countries, Iranian state television reported Saturday. The United States opposes the project because it fears it will weaken efforts to isolate Iran, which it accuses of running a clandestine nuclear weapons program. The pipeline is expected to run 2,600 kilometers from Iran to Pakistan and should carry 150 million cubic meters of gas a day.
