Iran, Pakistan must cooperate to ensure border security, fight terrorism

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Islamabad last night on a three-day visit to hold talks with Pakistani leadership.

He was warmly welcomed by senior officials of Foreign Ministry at Islamabad Airport.

He said cooperation between state bank of Pakistan and Bank Milli Islami will also be promoted.

The foreign minister also met his Pakistani counterpart Khawaja Asif.

Zarif and Abbasi discussed the construction of a much-delayed pipeline to pump Iran's natural gas to Pakistan and agreed that the two countries' oil ministries would hold technical talks in this regard.

Prime Minister Abbasi reaffirmed Pakistan's commitment to facilitate the peace process in Afghanistan and urged Iran's government to play its part.
