The Foreign Minister of Iran, Hosein Amirabdolahian, arrived this Sunday in the capital of Pakistan, Islamabad, along with a high-ranking delegation to meet with his Pakistani counterpart, Jalil Abbas Jilani, who had invited him after the rise in tensions. by mutual bombings against “terrorist” targets in their respective territories. Amirabdolahian has been received at the Nur Khan air base by the Foreign Secretary of Western Asia, Rahim Hayat. The head of Iranian diplomacy “will hold in-depth talks” with Jilani and will visit the Prime Minister, Anwarul Haq Kakar, as explained by the Pakistani authorities. “Delighted to welcome Foreign Minister Amirabdolahian on his third visit to Pakistan in recent years. With his visit, high-level relations between two brotherly countries have once again gained momentum. We look forward to productive and substantive interactions,” Hayat said in his profile on the social network X. For its part, the Iranian Foreign Ministry has indicated that the delegation will exchange opinions on strengthening cooperation in commercial, industrial, scientific, academic, security and energy matters. Jilani invited the Iranian minister last week, when both governments agreed to the return of their ambassadors to their respective posts, while Tehran stressed that ties were “solid” and “friendly”, describing terrorism as “a common threat” to both. and insisting on the need to apply bilateral agreements. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard carried out attacks last week against “terrorists” of the armed group Jaish al-Adl in Pakistani territory, after which Islamabad denounced the death of two children and the recall of its ambassador for what it described as a “flagrant violation of its sovereignty.” Islamabad further stated that Iran’s ambassador, who was then in Tehran, would not be allowed to return to the country “for now.” Just a day later, the Pakistani Army carried out bombing raids against Iranian territory, claiming that its target was members of the armed groups Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) and the Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF). Tehran claimed that the attacks had left nine dead and summoned the Pakistani charge d’affaires to “give explanations.” This same weekend, armed men shot dead nine Pakistanis at a time when Iran and Pakistan are recovering their relations, an event that has received condemnation from Jilani, who has considered that what happened is an “attempt of ruining Pakistani-Iranian relations.
