'Iran invites Pak, China to join Chabahar project'

Iran backs Kashmir cause while telling Pakistan to join Chabahar project India Harassing Diplomat's Children on Way to School: Pakistan

"I hope that they (Saudis) have the same feeling and be ready to bridge the differences", Zarif said in a press conference in Islamabad, Pakistan. The relations suffered more setbacks as 464 Iranian pilgrims were crushed to death in a stampede in Mecca in September 2015.

Yestrday, Zarif had said that Iran has offered China and Pakistan to participate in the Chahbahar seaport project. Iran's offer may also be seen as a move to placate Pakistan's deep misgivings over India's long-standing involvement in the Chabahar Port project. Zarif said Tehran had also expressed willingness to improve ties with Saudi Arabia when Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited Iran during the Yemen crisis, but the kingdom's response was not warm, AP reports. The Iranian minister also, meanwhile, extended the invitation to China. In November past year, India delivered the first consignment of wheat to Afghanistan through the Chabahar Port. These caveats must be deliberated as the $62 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor approaches completion, with expansions already being explored such as between Gwadar and Chabahar.

Zarif had earlier held bilateral talks with his Pakistani counterpart Khawaja Asif and addressed a trade conference.

Things We Learned From Tottenham's Convincing Victory Over Bournemouth on Sunday
I was very pleased with the players and I thought we played with a little bit of naivety in the end chasing the match. The way we want to play is that we want to show what we are here for, and we believe it is the right way.

The Iranian top diplomat, who left Tehran for Islamabad on Sunday afternoon heading a 30-strong politico-economic delegation, arrived in Karachi on the second day of his visit to Pakistan on Tuesday. "We are taking measures to do that and there is an open invitation to Pakistan to participate in that", he said. To underline this, he pointed to Pakistan's relations with Saudi Arabia, Iran's single major foreign policy irritant in its neighbourhood.

Sources privy to Pakistan High Commission in India, the issue was raised with Ministry of External Affairs and demanded the government to keep a check on security agencies' authorities.

Also in Karachi, Mr. Zarif paid an official visit to the Tomb of Muhammad Ali Jinnah to pay homage to the late founder of Pakistan.
