Chief of Army Staff General Syed Asim Munir and Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi have stressed the need for booting bilateral ties, the military’s media wing said on Monday.

In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations said that Iran’s president called on the army chief in Rawalpindi. The discussion primarily focused on matters of mutual interest, notably regional peace, stability, and border security.

Raisi began a three-day visit amid tight security in Islamabad. Major highways in Islamabad were blocked as part of security measures for his arrival, while the government declared a public holiday in Karachi and Lahore.

Both sides concurred on the necessity to bolster bilateral cooperation while jointly striving for regional stability and economic prosperity.

COAS Munir described the Pakistan-Iran border as “the border of peace and friendship,” emphasising the need for improved coordination along the border to prevent terrorists from jeopardising the longstanding brotherly relations between the two neighbouring countries.

President Raisi emphasised that by fostering cooperation between the two armed forces, Pakistan and Iran can attain peace and stability for both nations and the region.

At a joint press conference earlier in the day, the Iranian president stressed that the bilateral trade volume should be increased to $10 billion.
