Iran, Pakistan demand an immediate and unconditional ceasefire in Gaza

In their joint statement, Iran and Pakistan called for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire, as well as unimpeded access to humanitarian aid to the besieged people of Gaza, and the return of Palestinian refugees.

Iran and Pakistan issued a joint statement at the end of the official visit of Ebrahim Raisi, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

Acknowledging that the common border between Pakistan and Iran should be a "border of peace and friendship", both sides stressed the importance of regular cooperation and exchange of views between the political, military and security authorities of the two countries to deal with threats such as terrorism, drug trafficking, human trafficking, hostage taking, money laundering and kidnapping.

The two sides agreed on the further expansion of commercial and economic cooperation and on their commitment to transform their common border from a border of peace to a border of prosperity through common development-oriented economic projects, including the creation of common border markets, free economic zones and the opening of new borders.

They also emphasized the importance of cooperation in the field of energy, including electricity trade, power transmission lines and the IP gas pipeline project.

The two leaders agreed to increase bilateral trade to $10 billion over the next five years.

Both sides emphasized the need for sustainable long-term economic partnership and a common regional economic and communication model, especially for socio-economic development in Iran's Sistan and Baluchistan province and Pakistan's Baluchistan province.
