Iran, Pakistan Considering Plans to Expand Parliamentary Bonds – Political News | Instant News

In a telephone conversation on Saturday, Iran’s new Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and Pakistani Senate Chair Sadiq Sanjrani weighed plans to expand relations between the two neighbors, particularly trade and economic relations.

They also stressed the need to hold a joint Iran-Pakistan Economic Cooperation Commission session.

Qalibaf said Tehran and Islamabad needed to use their parliamentary capacity to enhance political, economic and security cooperation, especially to ensure the security of shared borders.

Sanjrani expressed hope for the resumption of economic and trade exchanges between the two neighbors which had stalled after the coronavirus outbreak.

The head of the Pakistani Senate also condemned sanctions against Iran amid the COVID-19 pandemic, calling on the international community to push for the removal of anti-Iran sanctions.

In a telephone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the end of April, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned US sanctions and increased pressure on Iran amid a corona virus outbreak, saying he felt bound to support Tehran in the face of Washington’s illegal sanctions. .
