Russia and Pakistan have signed an agreement to build the Pakistan Stream natural gas pipeline, Russia’s Energy Ministry said.

FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Russian Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov and Shafqat Ali Khan, Pakistan’s ambassador in Moscow, signed the agreement, the ministry said on Friday.

The 1,100-km project, formerly known as the North-South Pipeline, plans to carry 12.4 billion cubic metres of natural gas annually.

The project name was changed to ‘Pakistan Stream’ along with its partnership structure against the risk of US sanctions on Russian companies.

Although the countries signed an inter-governmental agreement on the project in 2015, the project has been postponed for several reasons.

The ministry said in a statement that the companies of both countries will soon start to implement the project which will contribute to Pakistan’s energy security.
