During the meeting of Iranian Ambassador to Pakistan Mehdi Honardoost with members of the Pak-Iran Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Thursday (Frb 14) Iran expressed its desire to become a part of the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.
“We believe CPEC is a very important and giant project which can greatly impact peace and cooperation among countries in the region,” said the ambassador. “Iran is an important country in the region with great potential and capabilities like transit line and all other resources.” Honardoost even went as far as saying that “may be without the energy and transit support of Iran, the multi-billion dollar project will not reach its final stage”. “We are ready to be a part of CPEC with all our capabilities and resources,” he added.
On Wednesday’s suicide attack on a convoy of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in Sistan Baluchestan, the ambassador said, “ “Both Islamic countries are plagued by terrorism which has become a common phenomenon of this region,” said Honardoost, urging regional partners to launch joint efforts to root out terrorism.
