Pakistan Senate Chairman Meets Top Iranian Officials

Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani told Naik the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan are determined to fight terrorism in the region.

Larijani in his meeting with the visiting Pakistani Senate Chairman called for closer cooperation between the security apparatus of the two countries in the fight against terrorism in the region.

The Iranian official also lauded friendly relations between the two neighboring states and urged the expansion of bilateral parliamentary ties.

The chairman of Pakistan's Senate, for his part, said the two nations have the potential to raise the level of their mutual cooperation in all spheres, adding that Islamabad is keen to enhance relations with Tehran.


Naik also met with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili.

During Naik’s meeting with President Ahmadinejad, the president said that the change in the West’s policy toward issues in the region has provided regional nations a great opportunity to help end foreign presence in the Middle East.

The developments taking place in the region “indicate that pursuing violent actions will no longer benefit the enemies of humanity and they have realized that the era (of violent actions) is over,” Ahmadinejad stated.

He said, “The change in their policy has provided (regional nations) an opportunity to completely end the presence of foreigners in the region.”

“However, if regional nations do not take this opportunity to strengthen their cultural bonds and their solidarity, there remains a danger that the hegemonic powers will create discord and problems again,” Ahmadinejad added.

Today, regional nations should work hand in hand and increase their cooperation in order to foil the enemies’ plots, he stated.

“The problems facing the region were imposed on nations by foreigners and from outside the region,” Ahmadinejad explained.

The Iranian president also said the fact that regional nations have a great ability to influence other nations has put the enemies in a quandary.

Ahmadinejad also stated that comprehensive cooperation between Tehran and Islamabad will benefit both countries.

Naik said that the Islamic Republic of Iran plays a key role in promoting peace and security in the region, adding that the two countries should increase their cooperation to counter the threats being made against the Islamic ummah.

Naik told Salehi that the enemies of Islam are seeking to sow discord among Muslims and Iran-Pakistan cooperation can play an important role in maintaining and strengthening unity among Muslims.

Salehi proposed the establishment of Iran-Pakistan joint security commission. He also suggested that Pakistan sign the agreement to establish Central Asia-Persian Gulf transit and transport corridor, which was inked by the foreign ministers of Iran, Turkmenistan, Oman, Qatar, and Uzbekistan in Ashgabat on April 25.

He also expressed Iran’s readiness to transfer electricity to Pakistan.

Naik stated that Pakistan is keen to expand its relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran in various areas.
