ISLAMABAD - New Iranian Ambassador Mehdi Honardoost paid a courtesy call on Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz in Islamabad on Tuesday. The Adviser congratulated him on appointment as ambassador.

The Iranian Ambassador said that he would try to contribute a lot to strengthen the Pak-Iran relations and to promote economic cooperation.



The Council of Arab Ambassadors in Islamabad yesterday condemned what they described as terrorist attack in storming and setting on fire of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Tehran and its Consulate in Mashhad on January 3. “The Council strongly condemns the terrorist act and denounces the targeting of the diplomatic mission, as a violation of international laws, United Nations charters and Human Right Norms”, said a statement issued by the Saudi Arabian Embassy.

The Council expressed deep concerns on overplay of the reality by the media spreading disinformation against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Council affirmed that spreading disinformation against an Arab country is transgression against all Arab countries and hoped that the media will discharge its duty with utmost responsibility in producing the reports based on authentic direct sources rather information gathered from non-reliable resources having own vested interests.
