    An agreement between Russia and Pakistan on the North-South gas pipeline is ready for signing, a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In December 2014, RT Global Resources, a subsidiary of Russia's state technologies corporation Rostec and Pakistan's Inter State Gas System (ISGS) announced a project to build oil and gas infrastructure in Pakistan.

    The project includes the construction of liquefied natural gas terminals as well as the 683-mile North-South pipeline, stretching from southern Pakistan's Karachi to Lahore in the country's northeast.

    "The contract is ready to be signed, this I can confirm. It is planned that the energy minister will sign it, but it is yet unknown when," the source told RIA Novosti.
