Pakistani PM Officially Received by Iran President in Tehran

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has officially welcomed Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan in capital, Tehran, on his first-ever visit to the Islamic Republic.

The ceremony took place at the Sa’adabad Palace in northern Tehran. Following the ceremony, the Iranian President and the Pakistani Premier sat down for talks on the expansion of bilateral relations and economic and cultural issues.

The Pakistani prime minister, who arrived in Iran on Sunday, had a brief stop-over in the holy city of Mashhad before leaving for Tehran.

While in Mashhad, Imran Khan met with local officials and paid a visit to the holy shrine of the eighth Shiite Imam.

This is Imran Khan’s first visit to Iran after taking office as Pakistan’s prime minister in 2018.

Imran Khan is accompanied by a high-ranking entourage consisting of several ministers. During his two-day stay, Khan is expected to meet with the leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
