Amir Abdollahian, the Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, has embarked on an official trip from Tehran to Islamabad leading a delegation.
IRNA news agency, affiliated with the Islamic Republic of Iran, reported that Amir Abdollahian, at the invitation of Pakistan, arrived in Islamabad on an unscheduled visit on Sunday, January 28th.
According to Iranian media reports, in addition to meeting and negotiating with his Pakistani counterpart, the Iranian Foreign Minister will also meet with the acting Prime Minister and the Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan.
However, IRNA, citing Iran’s Ambassador to Pakistan, wrote: “The Iranian Foreign Minister assures Pakistan that terrorism and its hidden backers can never disrupt the good neighbourly relations between the two brotherly countries.”
Meanwhile, on the eve of Amir Abdollahian’s visit to Islamabad, Iranian and Pakistani ambassadors have also been stationed in Islamabad and Tehran to resume their diplomatic missions.
It’s worth noting that the recent tensions have strained relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan.
This marks Amir Abdollahian’s second official visit to Pakistan in the current year.
