Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi assured his visiting Iranian counterpart on Friday that Islamabad would continue its efforts to ensure peace in the region, the Pakistani Foreign Office said.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif arrived in Pakistan to seek mediation amid heightened tensions between the Islamic Republic and the US.
Zarif started a two-day visit to Islamabad, ahead of next week’s emergency Arab League meeting. “Tensions in the region are in no one’s interest,” Qureshi said, promising that Islamabad would continue its efforts for peace in the region. AN
