Dr. Amir-Abdollahian went on to commend the electoral procedures employed in Pakistan, expressing confidence in the establishment of a new government and parliament. He further anticipated an upcoming visit by Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi to Islamabad, emphasizing the enduring nature of Tehran’s ties with Pakistan.

In response, Foreign Minister Jilani expressed appreciation for Iran’s proposal to convene an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Council of Foreign Ministers. The proposed meeting aims to address the critical situation in Gaza and the West Bank, condemning Israel’s aggressive actions against the vulnerable Palestinian population.

This interaction between Pakistani and Iranian authorities marks a significant diplomatic engagement, especially considering the context of Amir-Abdollahian’s recent visit to Islamabad in the aftermath of cross-border attacks. The exchange serves as a platform for constructive dialogue and collaboration between the two neighboring nations, reinforcing the importance of diplomatic ties in addressing shared concerns and regional challenges.
