Pakistan and Iran today said they would boost links between Gawadar and Chahbahar ports that are being developed by China and India.
This was decided in a meeting between Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif and his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif who is on an official visit here.
"The foreign ministers underlined that as two brotherly neighbouring countries Iran and Pakistan would deepen connectivity between the two sister ports of Gawadar and Chahbahar to benefit from their complementarities," the FO said.
The two ministers also exchanged views on important developments on regional and international peace and security.
His visit comes weeks after Pakistan announced that it would send troops to Saudi Arabia, Iran's arch rival.
