While talking about guarantee, Oil Minister, Jaipal Reddy said, “India mooted the proposal of exporting petroleum products, including diesel and petrol, to Pakistan. They have shown interest. It is ready to offer petroleum products supply to Pakistan and even build a pipeline to carry the same provided the neighbouring country give long-term offtake guarantee.”
