Soon after the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) emerged as largest party in the Wednesday’s general elections, its chairman Imran Khan in his first public address said his party desires stronger ties with Iran.

Khan, in a speech Thursday that was broadcast via video link, said he wants better ties with neighboring Iran, adding that his country will play its role in resolution of the Middle East crisis, Daily Pakistan reported.

“We want to improve ties with Iran. Saudi Arabia is a friend who has always stood by us in difficult times. Our aim will be that whatever we can do for conciliation in the Middle East, we want to play that role. Those tensions, that fight, between neighbors, we will try to bring them together,” Khan said in his address.

“Our economic crisis is such that we want to have good relations with all our neighbors … to use it and drive investment into Pakistan,” he said.

Imran Khan claimed victory and declared himself as the new prime minister of Pakistan on Thursday in a triumphant speech where he pledged to “strengthen institutions” and “increase income” in order to “get more taxes and benefit the country”.
