Referring to his three meetings with President Rouhani in Tehran, New York, and Bishkek, the Pakistani prime minister said mutual cooperation has been discussed during today’s meeting.
Stressing deep and long-standing relations between Iran and Pakistan, he said Pakistan has never forgotten Iran’s aid in 1965.
Khan also appreciated the Iranian government for its support of the Kashmir people and its position with regard to this humanitarian disaster.
Some eight million people have been in blockade over the last two months.
