From the perspective of theorists of international relations including functionalists and regionalists, establishment of cooperation and economic, commercial and transportation relations is among the suitable methods for fostering integration in international relations and deepening friendship, peace and stability particularly among regional countries. Considering this fact, the authors believe that the rise of the idea of constructing a peace pipeline (Iran-Pakistan-India) conforms to Iran's geo-economic situation; hence the realization of this idea has to be viewed as a strategic move and positive step towards securing national interests and national security of the three nations involved. In this respect, this paper examines various issues related to Iran's gas exports including the peace pipelines and liquidated natural gas (LNG), and assesses chances and challenges ahead of Iran in this regard, reviewing considerations on energy security.
