Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian, during his visit to Pakistan less than a week after both nations engaged in hostilities along their border, asserted that acts of terrorism in the region are being facilitated by ‘third countries’.
Abdollahian, invited by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani following diplomatic tensions, emphasized that militants in the border areas are orchestrated and supported by external actors, undermining the interests of both Iranian and Pakistani governments.
The visit comes after Pakistan recalled its Ambassador and requested the Iranian Ambassador not to return, actions that have since been reversed as full diplomatic ties have been restored.
Abdollahian highlighted the absence of territorial disputes between the two nations, emphasizing their shared history and bilateral relations.
Addressing the issue of terrorism, Abdollahian conveyed a strong message, stating that Iran and Pakistan are united against any threat to their common security.
He announced mutual agreements to enhance border security, combat terrorism, and foster economic cooperation, trade, and commerce, affirming the commitment of both nations to swiftly implement these measures.
