MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The new gas pipeline between Russia and Pakistan will open up markets for Russian companies, Pakistani Ambassador to Russia Zaheer Janjua told Sputnik on Friday.

Earlier in the day, the Russian Energy Ministry said that Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Pakistan’s Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi signed an agreement on the North-South gas pipeline.
