Islamabad , Apr.27 (ANI): Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will meet President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani during a four-hour stopover in Islamabad on Monday.

According to a Daily Times report, they will discuss the Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) gas pipeline project, though no related documents will be signed.

Iran s Ambassador Mashaallah Shakeri told reporters here that the Iranian delegation accompanying Ahmadinejad would include the countrys foreign minister, commerce minister and his key aides.

Sahkeri also welcomed China s interest in importing gas from Iran through Pakistan , saying increased international involvement would contribute to the projects viability.

However, he said the IPI project was a trilateral and a separate project might be needed if China were to be included. (ANI)
