Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi is set to visit Pakistan on April 22 as tension in the region surged after missile strikes on Israel.

Raisi along with a high-level delegation will meet Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and President Asif Ali Zardari during their visit.

The visit of Iranian delegation came after it launched over 300 drones and missiles at Israel in retaliation on its Damascus consulate attack that killed several people including Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) senior commanders Mohammed Reza Zahedi and senior commander Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi.

Apart from this, they are expected to deepen their cooperation which received a temporary setback earlier this year.

The Iranian president’s visit also holds significance as the two countries share key economic interests, most notably the Pak-Iran gas pipeline.
