Iranian minister visits Pakistan but support from Islamabad likely to be limited

Navjot Singh Sidhu says his friend Imran Khan has sent message for peace between India and Pakistan

However, what was significant in the hurriedly-called news conference of Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday was that the government had decided not to react in a knee-jerk manner.

The members who were a part of the council led by Dar were the staunch support the former finance minister's policies, which, the government says, are responsible for the country's economic crisis.

President of the United States Donald Trump withdrew Washington in May from the landmark Iran nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and made a decision to re-impose unilateral sanctions against Tehran. "Pakistan and Iran have stood by each other in hard moments".

Pakistan is cooperating with Beijing's "Belt and Road" initiative, but the country's financial situation remains hard.

"It was agreed to host the next rounds of Bilateral Political Consultations and the Joint Economic Commission at early dates".

"Timely and proactive cooperation by Iran in providing such access facilitates implementation of the Additional Protocol and enhances confidence", it said.

De Mistura asked if it's necessary to create a "worst-case scenario" just to secure Syrian government access to the roads. The fighters must be defeated, Mr de Mistura said, but not at the expense of thousands of civilian lives.

PTI and Imran Khan himself used to blame Dar for destruction of country's economy.

He stressed that he wanted to improve relations with the neighbouring countries, including India.

Pakistan's former military dictator Pervez Musharraf claims he had proposed a "four-point formula" on Kashmir to the then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee during the 2001 Agra Summit.

When we met Imran Khan for the first time in 1986, we never imagined that the swashbuckling Cricketer (who bowled "maidens" over) would turn to politics and would one day become the Prime Minister of one of the most important countries of the world.

Zarif also emphasized that the two neighboring countries of Iran and Pakistan should boost cooperation to counter any plot aimed at spreading Islamophobia.
