Armenian Energy Minister Armen Movsisian announced on 15 April that the Armenian government has prepared a new agreement on the planned construction of a natural-gas pipeline from Iran to Armenia. This new agreement, to be signed in the next two months, follows a series of meetings between Armenian and Turkmen officials last month and includes a special role for Turkmenistan in the gas-pipeline plan. Construction of the pipeline is to begin in early 2003 and seeks to transport natural gas from Turkmenistan through Iran and on to Armenia.

Plans are going ahead for a 1,010-kilometer highway running from Dogharoun in northwestern Iran and transiting Afghanistan to Termez, Uzbekistan, with trilateral talks between the countries concerned due to start soon. Tehran said the project will contribute to the reconstruction of Afghanistan and "promote exchanges between Iran and Uzbekistan," whose bilateral trade has been falling and was worth $135 million in 2001. The highway project is only part of a larger conception of regional development rooted in the memorandum of understanding, signed on 12 April by Iranian Minister of Roads and Transport Ahmad Khorram and Uzbek Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Yunisov, about establishing air, road, and rail connections between the two countries, the Iranian news agency IRNA said.

Secretary of State Colin Powell said Tuesday he hopes his talks this week in Pakistan and India can build on a recent easing of tensions and lead to a ``complete halt'' to the nations' month long confrontation. Speaking to reporters before a refueling stop in Ireland, Powell said a conciliatory speech by Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf showed that ``the rush toward conflict has slowed quite a bit.'' Powell will arrive in Pakistan on Wednesday and visit India on Thursday.
