Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian will visit Pakistan on Jan 29, on invitation of his Pakistani counterpart Jalil Abbas Jillani.

Pakistan and Iran agreed to restore diplomatic ties and sending back to ambassadors to their postings after a standoff.

The foreign office in Islamabad said that the foreign ministers stressed over brotherly ties and bilateral cooperation.

Pakistan s caretaker foreign minister urged that the respect of national solidarity and sovereignty should be the basis of cooperation.
