Tehran, May 24, 2021 (ICANA) – Member od the presiding board in the Islamic Parliament of Iran Ahmad Amir Abadi Farahani said unfortunately, despite the agreement made by senior Iranian and Pakistani officials to facilitate trade and commerce, especially in the border areas, this level of economic relations is not satisfactory.
Speaking in a meeting with Member of the Parliament of Pakistan Naveed Qamar, Amir Abadi Farahani emphasized the need to develop and exchanges in all fields, especially parliamentary and economic ones.
The Islamic Parliament of Iran is ready to exchange delegations and promote parliamentary ties between the Iranian and Pakistani parliaments and welcomes strengthening friendly relations between the two countries.
He also stressed the need to support joint ventures and private sector participation to boost mutual investment and to improve the livelihoods of Iranian and Pakistani border residents.
Palestine is a common aspiration, a link and an identifying element of all the Muslim countries, so the United States and the occupying regime, as seditionists in the region, should not be allowed to make the issue of the oppressed Palestinian people a minor issue in the world.
He stressed the need to increase coordination and synergy between the two countries in international bodies aiming to Palestinians’ rights, to condemn the Zionist regime’s crimes and to prevent and to end the occupation.
Meanwhile, Naveed Qamar said exchanging parliamentary and governmental delegations between Pakistan and Iran is at a good level, which shows the depth of friendship and between two nations.
Iran and Pakistan have common positions regarding the Zionist regime’s crimes. I hope that all the countries in the world will pay special attention to the issue of Palestine and support the oppressed Palestinians’ rights in the international community.
Trade interactions, opening border markets and setting up official customs can be a good for developing trade relations between the two countries.
