Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif returned home on Wednesday evening after his two-day visit to Islamabad.
Zarif visited the Pakistani capital to attend the Heart of Asia-The Istanbul Process Ministerial Conference aimed at discussing ways of helping the Afghan government solve its problems.
The conference was attended by top officials and representatives from more than 40 countries, including Afghanistan’s neighbors, some European countries and the United States.
In addition to delivering speeches at the foreign ministerial conference and on the sidelines of the meeting, the foreign minister held bilateral talks with his counterparts and heads of state from some participating countries.
Zarif held talks with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
Zarif also discussed issues of mutual interest as well as the latest regional and international issues in separate meetings with his Chinese, Indian, Pakistani, Tajik and Afghan counterparts.
The visit to Pakistan was Zarif’s fourth visit to Iran’s eastern neighbor since he took office two years ago.
