ISLAMABAD: Senate Chairman Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani said on Monday that parliamentary linkages would be strengthened and potential for enhancing the economic cooperation would be exploited to further cement the bilateral relations, as both Pakistan and Iran shared common dream for development and prosperity of people with the relationship between the two countries embedded in history.
