TEHRAN, May 13 (MNA) – Pakistan’s Commerce Minister Makhdoum Amin Fahim said on Tuesday that Islamabad will welcome any proposal by Iran to halt the spread of extremism and terrorism in the region.

The remarks by the Pakistani minister came as Iran has said it is drawing up a solution to prevent rising insurgency in Afghanistan and Pakistan.


Amin Fahim, who was attending Iran-Pakistan Joint Committee meeting in Tehran, told Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki that his government is determined to tackle the terrorism problem as his country has suffered a lot over the years.


Mottaki, for his part, said the best solution to resolve the crisis is one agreed by all regional countries.


Certain countries assume that extremism does not jeopardize their interest in the region, Mottaki said, noting that extremism and terrorism know no limit.


Mottaki went on to say that Iran and Pakistan have great potential to further expand their economic ties, adding that Iranian companies are ready to take part in Pakistan’s development projects.


He also said markets on Iran-Pakistan border can highly affect their bilateral relations.
