Pakistan and Iran have called for expansion of defense cooperation aimed at strengthening security and stability in the region.
In a telephone conversation with Defence Minister Pervez Khattak on Wednesday, his Iranian counterpart Amir Hatami hoped that during the new Pakistani government and under the political will of the leaders of the two nations, Iran and Pakistan would be able to make up for the past shortcomings in bilateral relations, Mehar News Agency reported.
"The current crises in the region and Muslim countries, particularly in Yemen, have no political solution, but rather, they need to be settled through dialogue and political approaches," said the Iranian Defense Minister.
Pervez Khattak highlighted the need for expansion of relations between the two countries to further strengthen peace and security in the region. He hoped that the cooperation between Tehran and Islamabad would develop in various fields.
