Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran, Major General Mohammad Bagheri and Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan have underscored the strengthening of security of borders.
During the meeting, Khan recalled his meeting with President of Iran Ebrahim Raisi on the sidelines of the Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Dushanbe which served as an additional impetus for the bilateral cooperation.
Khan described the Iran-Pakistan border as a border “of peace and friendship” and underscored the importance of the steps that both parties are taking to improve security. Khan also mentioned the commitment to creating borderline markets and emphasized that the introduction of those markets will help ensure income in the region.
The Prime Minister added that the opening of two additional border checkpoints last year helped make regulated traffic easier.
The interlocutors also exchanged views on the recent developments in the region and the Islamic world in terms of security, particularly the current situation in Afghanistan.
