Pakistan, Iran agree to resolve all regional issues

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday arrived in neighboring Iran where he met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

During the meeting, issues of mutual interest and security issues were discussed.

The Prime Minister said Saudi Arabia is one of the closest friends of Pakistan and Riyadh has always helped us in all times of need.

He expressed hope that Pakistan and Iran could work together for regional peace.
