Islamabad: Iran has offered to mediate between India and Pakistan over the long-standing issue of Kashmir by using its special influence and relations with two countries.
Radio Pakistan quoted Ambassador of Iran to Pakistan Mehdi Honardoost as saying in an interview that the Iranian Government is ready to give its assistance for peace and tranquility in the region.
He said the progress and development of both India and Pakistan would get hindered by any conflict, or tension between the two countries.
The envoy said the Free Trade Agreement between Pakistan and Iran would soon be operative to enhance two-way trade.
Ambassador Honardoost also said that China- Pakistan Economic Corridor is not only a game-changer but would also turn to be a unifying force for the countries in the region.(ANI)
