New Delhi, July 1 (IANS) Iran will consider India’s demand for making the India-Pakistan border the point of delivery of gas through the proposed tri-national pipeline. This was conveyed by Iranian oil minister Gholam Hossein Nozari to Indian Petroleum Minister Murli Deora on the sidelines of the World Petroleum Congress in Madrid.

The meeting follows last Friday’s announcement by the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan in New Delhi that bilateral issues dogging the Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) pipeline have been resolved.

India considers the fuel supply guarantee and security as a trilateral issue, since it wants the point of delivery of gas to be on the India-Pakistan border.

A government statement said Iran was open to considering India
