Pakistan will not adhere to sanctions on Iran...

They are going ahead with plans to import natural gas from Iran...this is our ally???
Pakistan will go ahead with a plan to import natural gas from Iran even if the US levies additional sanctions on the country, prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said.

Gilani's comments on Tuesday come two days after the US special envoy to Pakistan, Richard Holbrooke, cautioned Pakistan not to ''over commit'' itself to the deal because it could run afoul of new sanctions against Iran.

The deal has been a constant source of tension between the two countries, with Pakistan arguing that it is vital to its ability to cope with an energy crisis and the US stressing that it would undercut international pressure on Iran over its nuclear programme.
