(AP) Secretary of State John Kerry says he won't be pushed into making a decision on the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline, despite pressure from Canada and other pipeline supporters for quick action.


At a joint appearance Friday with Canada's foreign affairs minister, Kerry said he has not received a crucial environmental report on the $7 billion pipeline, which would carry oil from western Canada to refineries in Texas.


Kerry said "a lot of questions" have been raised on the 1,700-mile pipeline proposed by Calgary-based TransCanada. He said the questions require answers.


Kerry said he "can promise our friends in Canada that all the appropriate effort is being put into trying to get this done effectively and rapidly."


The State Department has jurisdiction over the pipeline because it crosses an international border.
