PM Nawaz Sharif arrives in Tehran

Nasim—Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived in Tehran on Sunday in order to hold talks with Iranian senior officials.

Nawaz Sharif is set to meet Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and President Rouhani in his two-day visit.

“The visit of the prime minister to Iran would not only provide a political affirmation to our bilateral relations, but would also set a forward trajectory for their future course,” the Foreign Office said in a statement.

The visit, a diplomatic source from Tehran said, would not begin on a very high note as the Iranian leadership snubbed a Pakistani offer for mediation with Riyadh. The offer was delivered by Adviser on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz.
