In a meeting between Iran President Hassan Rouhani and Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September, Iran had shown willingness to become a part of the project.
The economic corridor is about 3,000 km long consisting of highways, railways and pipelines to connect China's Xinjiang province to Pakistan's Gwadar port.
"CPEC is a win-win cooperation so we are looking forward to explore the possibilities of cooperation among all the regional countries," he said.
