‘Third country’ facilitating terrorists, Iranian FM tells Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: (Suno News) Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Monday told his Pakistani counterpart Jalil Abbas Jilani that “third country” was facilitating terrorists on the Pak-Iran border.

The Iranian FM said that Pakistan is a brotherly Islamic country of Iran and that the Iranian president would visit Pakistan soon. On the occasion, Pakistani foreign minister said that the two countries have decided to establish a high-level commission, which will include the foreign ministers of both countries, to fight the bilateral challenges.

Pakistan and Iran have agreed to further strengthen bilateral ties and promote peace and prosperity.

Both countries have sought to ease tensions after deadly cross-border strikes targeting militant hideouts threatened diplomatic relations.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian had arrived in Pakistan at the invitation of Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani to hold meetings with Pakistani authorities.

The new understanding between the two countries was reached during a meeting between the Iranian foreign minister and his Pakistani counterpart at the Foreign Ministry in Islamabad.

Both foreign ministers also addressed a joint presser in which they vowed to work to promote mutually desired goals and a collective approach to address common challenges.

Earlier, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amir Abdollahian was received at the Nur Khan airbase by Additional Foreign Secretary (Afghanistan and West Asia) Rahim Hayat.

His meetings with Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq and Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani were scheduled.

Pakistan on Saturday unequivocally condemned a terrorist incident killing nine Pakistani nationals in Iran, and termed it “a horrifying and despicable incident”.

On Jan 22, Pakistan said Iran’s foreign minister would arrive in the country to mend relations after the neighbours exchanged missile strikes at what they said were militant targets.
