Pakistan and Iran Collaborate to Strengthen Bilateral Relations: FM Hossein


The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Dr. Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, emphasized the importance of Pakistan as a neighboring Muslim country, highlighting the historical, religious, and cultural ties that strengthen the connection between the two nations.

In a conference titled “Economic and Investment Opportunities between Iran and Pakistan,” Dr. Amir-Abdollahian stated that significant measures have been taken in recent years to enhance bilateral relations, particularly in the economic sector.

The strategic geographic positions of Iran and Pakistan, along with their location on international transportation corridors, have led to agreements such as the Belt and Road initiative. These agreements have the potential to facilitate regional economic cooperation.

Additionally, the ports of Chabahar in Iran and Gwadar in Pakistan offer valuable opportunities for increased bilateral trade and economic cooperation.

Iran can fulfill Pakistan’s energy demands, especially through the extension of the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline. Furthermore, Iran’s electricity export to Pakistan is also experiencing growth.

Dr. Amir-Abdollahian noted that the total bilateral trade between Iran and Pakistan has been steadily increasing in recent years.

The collaborative efforts between Pakistan and Iran not only strengthen their bilateral relations but also pave the way for mutual economic growth and cultural exchange.

As neighboring countries with shared historical, religious, and cultural ties, Pakistan and Iran are committed to fostering a strong and prosperous relationship for the benefit of both nations.
