KARACHI: For­mer state min­is­ter for for­eign af­fairs Sen­a­tor Akram Zaki on Sun­day said Pak­istan and Iran en­joy strong po­lit­i­cal re­la­tions but eco­nomic re­la­tions are not sat­is­fac­tory. He lauded the ef­forts of Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif to ce­ment eco­nomic ties with Iran which will ben­e­fit both coun­tries and en­tire re­gion. Sen­a­tor Akram Zaki said this while talk­ing to Pres­i­dent of Pak­istan Econ­omy Watch Dr. Mur­taza Mughal. He said that the visit of Has­san Rouhani can re­sult in early com­ple­tion of Pak-Iran gas pipeline project which has been de­layed due to sanc­tions. The visit of Ira­nian Pres­i­dent is a wel­come devel­op­ment while a 60-mem­ber trade del­e­ga­tion that ar­rived with him re­flects in­cli­na­tion of Iran to take eco­nomic ties with Pak­istan to new heights, he said.
