New Development in Iran-Pakistan Diplomatic Relations

In an effort to mend strains in the relationship, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has paid a visit to Islamabad. This trip was made at the request of Jalil Abbas Jilani, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, following the recent conflict involving reciprocal strikes by both nations.

Amir-Abdollahian landed at the Nur Khan airbase, where he was met by Additional Foreign Secretary for Afghanistan and West Asia from Pakistan, Rahim Hayat Qureshi. Based on information direct from our source, this diplomatic visit aims to mend the strained relationship with in-depth discussions involving his Pakistani counterpart Jilani, as well as caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar ul Haq Kakar.

Round of Attacks between Iran and Pakistan

On January 16, Tehran initiated a series of missile attacks on militant bases located in southwestern Pakistan. In a retaliation, Islamabad also launched strikes inside Iran just two days later.
