TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan arrived in Tehran on Sunday morning for a visit that includes meetings with high-ranking Iranian officials.
The Pakistani premier has visited Iran for the second time in six months.
“In the framework of the longstanding and friendly relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Imran Khan will make his second visit to Iran this year within the agenda of close and friendly cooperation between the two countries,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in comments on Saturday.
He also noted that regional and international issues as well as the latest developments in bilateral relations between Iran and Pakistan are among the main topics of discussion in Imran Khan’s meetings during his one-day visit to Iran.
Regarding the possibility of Islamabad’s mediation between Tehran and Riyadh, Mousavi told Press Shia that the mediation of Imran Khan is not on the agenda this time, but the latest and most important regional and international developments will be discussed.
If there is a misunderstanding it must be resolved, the Iranian spokesman stressed, saying the regional states must not allow the region to undergo developments that would let the third parties and trans-regional countries take advantage of the situation.
“The readiness of the Islamic Republic of Iran to negotiate with the countries of the region is a matter already announced, and our initiatives and plans have always been in line with such policy,” IFP quoted Mousavi as saying.
