Senator Zaki lauds PM's Iran initiative
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.
