PM Nawaz Sharif to visit Iran on Sunday 2014
ISLAMABAD May 5 (Online): Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will travel to Iran on Sunday in a visit seen as an attempt to improve relations frayed by the kidnapping of Iranian border guards.
The conflict in Syria will also be on the agenda, along with other regional issues.
"Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will pay a two-day official visit to Iran from May 11 to 12," a foreign office official told on Monday.
He said Sharif would hold talks with President Hassan Rouhani on May 11 and was also expected to pay a call on spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei the following day.
"Bilateral relations, the regional political situation and various protocols will come under discussion," he said.
Regional issues including Syria will also come up for discussion as Pakistan attempts to balance its relations Iran and Saudi Arabia, analysts say.
