Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif in a meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday reiterated Pakistan’s desire for developing all-out ties with Iran.

According to Iranian media, both Asif and Rouhani agreed that there was no military solution to the problems in Afghanistan.

The Iranian president said security and regional stability were important issues, the solution to which lies in collaborative efforts.

He also expressed Iran's readiness in maintaining cooperation with regional countries such as fighting terrorism and establishing peace, stability and security.

Reinforcing security at borders and changing borders into economic and trade borders and also creating border markets will be advantageous for Iran and Pakistan, said Rouhani.

They exchanged views on the entire spectrum of bilateral relations and regional security scenario especially in the backdrop of new US strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia.
