Posted In: News Date:Aug 8th, 2018

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday invited Pakistan’s Prime Minister-designate ImranKhan for a formal visit to his country which the PM-elect has gladly accepted, according to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

“Pakistan wishes to strengthen trade & diplomatic relations with Iran,” the PTI chairman told the Iranian leader on a phone call.

Both leaders exchanged best wishes and love for the people of both neighbouring countries, it added.

President Rouhani said “Pakistan and Iran are not merely neighbouring countries but also bonded by religious and cultural values.

As soon as transfer of government completes, respective Foreign offices will finalize the dates for Imran Khan’s visit to Iran, said a statement issued by the PTI.

Last week, Khan conveyed to Tehran’s envoy Mehdi Honardoost, who paid him a visit at his Bani Gala residence that the country wanted to play a constructive and positive role between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
