The delegation of Afghanistan will soon visit Turkmenistan to discuss the gas and Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline project, the TOLOnews television network reported on Saturday, with reference to the official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan.
Shafay Azam, an official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan, said, "We will have a visit to Turkmenistan, and we will talk about the gas prices and implementation of projects in Herat and also the industrial parks."
The Afghan Foreign Ministry also said committee was formed in Afghanistan to carry out the practical work on the TAPI pipeline project.
The committee will be led by the First Deputy Prime Minister of Afghanistan Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.
The TAPI pipeline is expected to carry 33 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas each year along a route stretching 1,800 km from Galkynysh, the world's second-biggest gas field in Turkmenistan, to the Indian city of Fazilka near the Pakistan border.
