The top Pakistani diplomat’s visit to Iran on Monday was solely focused on deescalating tensions between Tehran and Washington, an expert on South Asia said.
The meetings between Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and senior Iranian officials show that the country has a lot at stake in the region and all-out war between Iran and the US in no way serves the neighboring country’s interests, Mohsen Rouhisefat also told Iranian Diplomacy in an interview. 
Asked whether the visit by the senior diplomat to Tehran was a response to Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar’s December trip to Iran, Rouhisefat said, “There are more pressing issues at hand right now, so I cannot see how the main reason for the minister’s visit could have been the promotion of bilateral ties.”
