Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Tehran on Sunday morning to discuss bilateral ties and regional developments with Iranian officials, Mehr News reports.

Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry noted in a Saturday statement that the visit is “part of his [khan's] initiative to promote peace and security in the region.”

Imran Khan is set to hold meetings with the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. According to reports, he will then depart Tehran for Riyadh.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said on Saturday that the issue of Imran Khan’s mediation between Iran and Saudi Arabia has not been raised “but the latest and most important regional and international developments will be discussed during the visit.”

“The Islamic Republic has announced that it is always ready, with or without a mediator, to hold talks with its neighbors, including Saudi Arabia, so that if there is any misunderstanding, it could be cleared,” he added.

The Pakistani prime minister made his first-ever official visit to Iran in April and held talks with Ayatollah Khamenei and President Rouhani.
