The delegation has traveled to Pakistan at the invitation of Navid Qamar, the head of Pakistan’s Iran-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group, to discuss the strengthening of parliamentary relations.
Islamabad is committed to strengthening cooperation with Tehran, especially the development of border trade and strengthening the security of the common borders, Pakistan's interior minister said.
The head of Iran-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group in Pakistan’s Senate Senator Talha Mahmood in an interview with IRNA on Tuesday stressed the importance of relations with Iran and fraternal relations between the two countries and said Pakistani Parliament strongly supports relations with Iran.
Mahmood expressed satisfaction with the presence of Iranian parliamentary delegation in Pakistan and called for increased exchanges.
The 58-year-old politician said that parliamentary interactions are a special element in expansion of relations between the two countries.
