The current Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, met up with Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The two discussed serious matters amongst each other. During these talks, Khamenei managed to directly hit out at the US for sowing seeds of discord between the relationship of Pakistan and Iran. He directly held Washington responsible to create a rift between Islamabad and Tehran.
While speaking to Nawaz Shairf, Khamenei said, “There are hands at work that intend to cause differences between the two friendly and intimate nations through different methods, including stirring insecurity at the lengthy common borders. But we should not allow the big opportunity existing for the expansion of the relations between the two countries to be lost.”
He further added, “America, whose wickedness is known to all, is among the governments trying to make distance between Iran and Pakistan. Besides America, there are other governments at work too.”
Both the parties spoke about how they can end up working together for a better future. Khamenei specially stated that that there should be a further development in the ties between the two countries. He stated that there should be an implementation of joint ventures, for instance the Pak-Iran gas line project. Furthermore he expressed that there is hope that there will be good measures adopted while Pakistan is under the rule of Nawaz Sharif and his party.
