Pakistan foreign minster in Iran on one-day visit

Pakistan foreign minster in Iran on one-day visit”

Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakria said during the daylong trip, the Foreign Minister would call on Iranian President Hassan Rohani and hold formal talks with his counterpart Javad Zarif.

The minister stressed that there is no military solution of Afghan issue; rather, it should be resolved politically.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif is embarking on a visit to neighbouring Iran on Monday on the second leg of his regional tour as part of Islamabad's diplomatic initiative to offset the possible negative fallout of US President Donald Trump's new strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia.

According to state radio, the duo exchanged views on latest regional situation and different aspects of the bilateral relations in the backdrop of new USA strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia.

Iranians believe that Pakistan suspended Iran-Pakistan (IP) pipeline, bowing down to the United States and Saudi Arabia, and opted US-backed Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline while Pakistan believes that Iranian soil had been used to destabilise Pakistan by India.

Trump further said, "We can no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban, and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond", adding, "Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan". Wang Yi appreciated its closest ally Pakistan on Friday for its efforts to curb terrorism. He said law and order situation in Afghanistan will also be discussed.

In the press conference, Wang emphasised China will continue its firm support for Pakistan in the war against terrorism, saying both the countries are steady anchors for peace in the region.
