"Prime Minister (Khan) also extended invitation to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to visit Pakistan", the statement said.

Zarif also held separate talks with Pakistan' Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and called for expansion of relations in various spheres.

The two sides also discussed ways to develop military and security cooperation and expressed hope that Tehran and Islamabad would further increase relations given their common goals, interests and border concerns. The need to fight terrorists would be "the primary part" of their discussions, he was quoted as saying by Dawn newspaper. While Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi publicly declared the country support for Iran's "principled stance" over the 2015 nuclear deal, after the withdrawal of the U.S. from the agreement, analysts said that Islamabad might not be in a position to provide Tehran with the support it has promised. "I will lead Pakistani delegation", Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters on Tuesday evening.

He emphasized that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly verified that Iran had strictly adhered to the terms of the JCPOA and said Pakistan stands with Iran in this hour of need. Useful exchange of views on strengthening cooperation in economic, trade and connectivity sectors, cultural and people to people links, took place.
