Tehran Welcomes Closer Pak Ties

President Hassan Rouhani congratulated Pakistan's new prime minister on taking office, hoping for expansion of relations between the two neighboring countries. In a message on Sunday, Rouhani congratulated Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on assuming the post of Pakistan's prime minister, Tasnim News Agency reported. He expressed hope that ties between Iran and Pakistan would grow in all fields during Abbasi's tenure. The new Pakistani premier formed his Cabinet on August 4. Former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, resigned in late July after the Supreme Court of Pakistan disqualified him for not declaring a source of income he denies receiving. Despite some issues, such as Tehran's grievances over Islamabad's lack of action to help secure the common border, which is every so often used by terrorists to carry out cross-border attacks, the two sides' relations remain amicable.
