Back Ground of the Relations of the two Countries
 

The relations of the two countries of Iran and Pakistan initiated with the independence of Pakistan in 1947 and recognition of Pakistan by the Govt of Iran. Iranian Embassy being opened in Karachi and he Govt authorities of the two countries started visiting each other many times. In 1949 the Emperor of Iran visited Pakistan and the mutual friendship pact was signed by the two sides.

Text of the friendship treaty

Iran –Pakistan mutual relations took a new shape in the year 1955 following their attaining membership in the Baghdad pact and thereafter entering the Cento pact in 1958.
Besides the two countries of Iran and Pakistan developed special relations in the field of economy, culture, and mutual technological assistance through their cooperation through the RCD prgrammes.
And this pact was in force up till the change of regime into an Islamic Republic and so Iran and Pakistan mutually cooperated and co-coordinated through this pact.
Iran played a role of mediator in putting an end to the opacity and displeasure between Pakistan and Afghanistan, and similarly took up mediator role between Pakistan and India on Kashmir issue and then inter relations of Iran and Pakistan in the Cultural and economical fields and their mutual political relations continued on.
Pakistan, following the change of Iranian regime to an Islamic Republic, was the first ever country to recognize it officially. Presently the relations of the two countries are on the peak level. Pakistan, from the very beginning of the thrusted Iraq war upon Iran remained against the same.
The peak of the expansion of friendly relations of Islamic Republic of Iran and Islamic Republic of Pakistan came about with the visit of Hazrat Ayat ullah Khamnai, the then president of Iran, who was warmly greeted by Mohammad Zia ul Haq, the then President of Pakistan, and other statesmen of the country. This gave positive results regarding consolidating the love and mutual relations of the two sides.
The political relations of Islamic Republic of Iran and Islamic Republic of Pakistan continues on the loftiest level in various fields including the journey of political delegations, holding of various conferences and exhibitions, sending of mutual messages which are multidimensional and of a wide level. Similarly no point of ambiguity resulting from coldness of relations exists as regards the cultural and commercial relations and the organization of pacts, agreements and memorandums of mutual understandings.
