"The situation has been improving as bilateral trade rose by 31 percent last year," Honardoust said on Sunday, addressing a group of officials of Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) in Karachi.
The Iranian ambassador said both countries have many commonalities that could not be found between any other countries of the entire region.
“There is a huge potential for cooperation between Iran and Pakistan,” he added.
Honardoust said Iran is keen to develop its relations with Pakistan by focusing on enhancing trade that has continued to grow each year.
In relevant remarks in November, Honardoust underlined that Tehran and Islamabad are resolved to further broaden and strengthen bilateral relations and mutual cooperation.
There are huge potentials for cooperation between the two powers of the region, “with good neighborly ties and whole history of friendship and fraternity”, Honardoust said in an interview with Pakistan's English daily 'The Nation'.
He said Iran and Pakistan are determined to boost relationship, which was “completely opposite to the Western apparatus, creators of division among Muslim societies, which unfortunately has been evident in recent years. The Muslim societies have been under fire of division, which is exactly being pursued by foreign elements.”
