ISLAMABAD: Secretary Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) of Iran Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani on Thursday called on Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif at the PM House.
Matters of mutual interest were discussed during the meeting. Both sides expressed grief and sorrow over the tragic incident of Mina in which citizens of both the countries had passed away.
The premier said that Pakistan and Iran were brotherly countries and shared deep historic and cultural ties. He added that Chabahar and Gwadar ports would be joint sister ports and their operational activity shall complement each other.
He further said that Pakistan had rendered invaluable sacrifices in the war against terrorism and the Operation Zarb-e-Azb was yielding very positive and fruitful results.
Iranian National Security Secretary Ali said that terrorism had no boundaries and it was a common enemy of both the countries, and a stable Afghanistan was in the best interest of both Iran and Pakistan.
He further said that there was a lot of scope in enhancing economic and communication areas between the two countries. He said that Pakistan and Iran would establish fibre optic link between them.
