India, Pakistan offer half Iran's gas asking price

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Iran's Deputy Oil Minister Mohammad Hadi Nejad-Hosseinian said on Thursday India and Pakistan were offering to pay only half the amount for Iranian gas that Tehran was seeking as part of efforts to agree a pipeline deal .

Well, if nothing else India and Pakistan can agree on one thing, they won't bend over and allow Ahmadinejad to hose them on this pipeleine deal. Will be interesting to see if this rare show of collective spine has any resilence.
