Unic Press UK: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi and the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Islamic Republic of Iran held talks Friday when the latter arrived in Islamabad, the capital city of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, on a two-day official visit.
In a Press Release today, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Pakistan said both officials discussed issues relating to “strengthening cooperation in economic, trade and connectivity sectors, cultural and people to people links”. They agreed to fight against terrorism and extremism.
Qureshi said that the government and people of Pakistan are in support of the Iranian government stance on Iran Nuclear Deal – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – hoping that the “remaining parties to the Agreement would uphold their commitments in letter and spirit.”
Pakistan-Iran bilateral relationship has not been very strong for several years, given the close relationship between Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – one of Iran’s age-long foe.
