MP: Iran-Pakistan Ties Can Abolish Terror

“The expansion of security cooperation between Iran and Pakistan through timely exchange of information will help in controlling the presence of terrorists and thugs on the borders between the two countries,” Chairman of the Iran-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group Ali Akbar Aqaei Moghanjouyee told ICANA on Saturday.

He added that the common border between Iran and Pakistan should not be used by terrorists to carry out acts of terror and pointed out that the establishment of security in border areas would bring about an opportunity for economic and cultural cooperation.

The Iranian legislator also denounced the US military presence in Pakistan under the pretext of fighting terrorism, saying, “It only aims at violating the territorial integrity of Pakistan and undermining the security and independence of an independent country.”

The remarks came after Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said in a Thursday meeting with Pakistan's Senate Chairman Farooq H Naik that Tehran and Islamabad are determined to fight terrorism in the region, calling for closer cooperation between the two countries' security apparatus.

Larijani underlined the need for the security organizations of Iran and Pakistan to cooperate in the fight against terrorism.

He noted that cordial ties and deep cultural commonalties between the two nations of Iran and Pakistan had forged very friendly relations between the two sides. "Iran and Pakistan enjoy great potentials for bilateral and regional cooperation which they must utilize in the interest of their two nations," Larijani told his Pakistani guest.

The top legislator cited the great Islamic poet and philosopher Iqbal Lahori as a symbol of close links between the two nations of Iran and Pakistan.

Voicing satisfaction over the close cooperation of Iranian and Pakistani parliaments at international circles and organizations, Larijani noted: "Parliamentary relations are an important part of Iran-Pak interactions which play an important role in facilitating bilateral ties."

Turning to the wicked phenomenon of terrorism which hurt all the regional nations, Larijani said Tehran and Islamabad should not allow subservient elements to damage the cordial relations between the two Muslim neighbors. In this respect, he stressed, the security apparatuses of the two countries must work together closely.

The Iranian parliament speaker also reiterated the important role Tehran and Islamabad played in strengthening peace and development in Afghanistan.

The Pakistani Senator for his part praised the deep cultural, religious and historical bons between Iran and his nation and said: "Further consolidation of friendly ties with Iran is of high significance to Pakistan." He added that the strong will of the Pakistani leader was to expand all-out relations with Tehran.

Naik said his country was the biggest victim of terrorism and reiterated that the government in Islamabad was determined to root out this menace. "We are ready for all types of cooperation in the fight against terrorism and it is very important for our security organizations to meet on regular basis."

He also said the enemies of the Islamic world are after creating division among Muslims and stressed that cooperation between Tehran and Islamabad can play an important part in maintaining unity among Muslims.

The Pakistani Senate chairman who is heading a delegation here at the invitation of Larijani, has also met with President Mahmous Ahmadinejad, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili.
