Iranian Foreign Minister Momammad Javad Zarif held phone talks with Sartaj Aziz, advisor to Pakistani Prime Minister, IRNA reported.
The sides reportedly discussed the Syrian issue, as well as international and regional issues.
Both sides agreed that the Syrian problem must be solved through negotiations and political solutions, as military solutions are unacceptable.
Zarif said that if foreign forces attack Syria, this would affect the whole region.
Iran and a number of other countries have warned against the ramifications of a military strike against Syria, saying that the fallout from a military action would engulf the entire region.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies - especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey - are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced due to the violence.
