Ahmadinejad: No Restrictions on Expansion of Tehran-Islamabad Ties
(FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stressed that Tehran sees no restriction or impediment to the further expansion of its relations and cooperation with Islamabad.
Speaking at a meeting with Pakistani Minister of National Regulations and Services Firdous Ashiq Awan here in Tehran on Sunday, Ahmadinejad said that the relations between Iran and Pakistan are growing fast in different fields and at different levels.
"There is no restriction or impediment to the further bolstering of cooperation between the two countries," Ahmadinejad said, and urged both states' officials to take effective steps to further deepen and improve mutual cooperation.
During the meeting, Ashiq Awan said that the two countries are highly motivated to boost mutual cooperation, and expressed the hope that Iran-Pakistan ties would become a role-model for other regional states.
Iran and Pakistan have always had very close and intimate relations throughout the history.
The two countries exchange delegations on a regular basis and their leaders are resolved to further accelerate expansion of ties and cooperation between the two neighboring nations.
Late in March, Iranian and Pakistani presidents in a meeting in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, reiterated the two countries' enthusiasm for the further expansion of bilateral economic relations.
President Ahmadinejad and his Pakistani counterpart Asif Ali Zardari underlined the need for further development of all-out ties, particularly in the field of economy.
