India to supply petrol to Pakistan...

Seeking to cash on the "thaw'' in relations and opening up of borders for liberalised trade between the two neighbours, Pakistan on Friday sought immediate supplies of petrol from India through the land route to meet the widening deficit and flaring demand in its country.
"I met the Petroleum Secretary, G.C. Chaturvedi and discussed the issue of import of petrol from India,'' Pakistan Secretary for Petroleum and Natural Resources, Muhammad Ejaz Chaudhry told journalists on the sidelines of the 7th Asia Gas Partnership Summit here.
Responding to the reqeust from the neighbour, New Delhi immediately agreed in-principal to supply petrol to Pakistan and it was decided that officials of the two countries will meet sometime next month to finalise the modalities for the export of petrol from India. Both the sides also discussed the issue of supply of petrochemical products to Pakistan from Indian refineries as Pakistan now has allowed use of land route through trucks for supply of such products that are in great demand with the industry across the border.
