Iranian envoy meets Shireen Mazari

Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Seyed Mohamad Ali Hosseini met Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr. Shireen Mazari here on Wednesday.

During the meeting, the minister said the two countries had strong cultural, historical, and religious ties.

She said we valued our relationship with Iran and there was the need to revitalize cooperation to raise globally collective concerns for human rights.

While discussing the confronted challenges to the region, the ambassador said Iran was facing one-sided sanctions even after fulfilling all international commitments to its nuclear program. He said Afghanistan was undergoing a disaster in which, both Iran and Pakistan were hosting millions of Afghan refugees for the last 40 years.

Hosseini said Iran was extending its assistance to Afghan people who were facing the worst humanitarian crisis. He said currently, Iran was not getting any international assistance to tackle the issues of refugees, human trafficking, and drug trafficking even in the face of serious economic difficulties due to sanctions.

Shireen Mazari stated that the Pakistan government under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan had raised a voice against hypocrisy and double standards of western countries that were committing human rights violations under the Islamophobic trends.

The two sides agreed that there was a need for closer cooperation among Muslim countries to handle many challenges especially of the economy and human rights in the post-Covid world.
