Pakistan, Iran agree on effective border control

Pakistan and Iran on Monday agreed to ensure effective border controls including through enhanced communications and co-ordination between the relevant focal authorities on both sides. It was agreed during the 8th round of Pakistan-Iran bilateral political consultations held in Foreign Office today. The Pakistan side was led by Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry. Deputy Foreign Minister Ibrahim Rahimpour led the Iranian delegation.

Both the sides also agreed for frequent exchanges and meetings of the established mechanisms, including the Joint Border Commission (JBC). The consultations focused on the entire gamut of bilateral relations, including political exchanges, trade and economic co-operation, IP gas pipeline project, energy collaboration, and border security co-operation.

Consistent with the vision of the leadership in both countries, it was agreed to take further practical steps for comprehensive up-gradation of bilateral co-operation in diverse fields. A special emphasis was laid, as already agreed by the leadership in Pakistan and Iran, on forging an economic-intensive partnership.
