Lawmaker Calls for Iran-Pak Security-Military Cooperation

He told ICANA that Iran and Pakistan are among the countries that have been subjected to heavy pressure by the West over their nuclear programs, calling for further bolstering of mutual ties in the fields of security, military, economy and culture.

He pointed out that people in the occupied Afghanistan are in need of social, political and international help from neighboring countries, including Iran and Pakistan and said, “Security cooperation between Tehran and Islamabad will play an effective role in the future of Afghanistan.”

Farhangi, who is also a member of the Iran-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group, referred to deep-rooted cooperation between Iran, Pakistan and Turkey and added, “Broad trilateral cooperation will lead to the establishment of a new superpower in the region.”

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.
