Pakistan: Islamabad to continue doing business with Tehran
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 12
By Elnur Baghishov - Trend:
Pakistan opposes the US sanctions against Iran, and Islamabad will continue trade with Tehran, Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said at a press conference in Islamabad.
He said that the US officials exert pressure on several countries to cut off economic and trade relations with Iran.
Pakistan will expand trade relations with Iran, and this is in the interests of Islamabad, he added.
Mohammad Faisal said that Pakistan is against any economic embargo by superpowers against the countries.
“We believe that these actions have a negative impact not only on a certain country, but on the whole region as well,” he noted. “Restrictions created by sanctions have a negative impact on trade turnover and economic opportunities among countries.”
He added that the Pakistani government is searching ways to use new opportunities to expand relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran within its own interests.
