No Limits to Development of Iran-Pakistan Ties: Raisi

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Highlighting the close bonds between Iran and Pakistan, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said Tehran sees no limits to the enhancement of relations with the neighboring country in various fields.

Raisi and Prime Minister of Pakistan Shehbaz Sharif met on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has a serious will to expand cooperation and improve the level of relations with Pakistan, the president said, adding, "Iran considers no limits for the development of cooperation with Pakistan in the fields of trade, economy, energy and transportation."

"Iran-Pakistan relations are not ordinary interaction between two neighbors, but deep relations based on cultural closeness and shared belief for thousands of years," the Iranian president stated, according to his official website.

Expressing his sympathy to the people of Pakistan for the losses caused by the recent flood in this country, Raisi said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran will not hesitate to provide what it can to help the Pakistani flood victims."

Referring to the recent meeting with Sharif on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Samarkand, Raisi stated, "Increasing the meetings and consultations between the officials of the two countries will have a constructive effect on expanding cooperation and improving the level of relations between the two countries."

For his part, the Pakistani prime minister expressed happiness over the second meeting with President Raisi in five days, and said, "This is a sign that Iran and Pakistan are members of the same family. We are interested in developing relations as much as possible, especially in the economic and commercial fields, with our friendly and brotherly country, Iran."

Sharif also appreciated the support of the government and people of Iran for his country, especially during the recent floods.
