US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says India should reconsider its pipeline project with Iran. Ms. Rice used her New Delhi visit to voice her opposition to the plan for a pipeline to carry natural gas from Iran through Pakistan to India. She added that Washington is ready to work with India on finding alternatives. The United States does not want nations doing business with Iran until issues related to Tehran's nuclear program are resolved. After India, Ms. Rice headed to Islamabad, where she and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf discussed his country's moves toward free elections. Ms. Rice stressed the need for Pakistan to keep to its schedule to hold elections in 2007. She also praised General Musharraf's commitment to the war on terror. Her Asian tour also includes stops in Afghanistan, Japan, South Korea and China.
