Leader of the opposition in the Senate Raja Muhammad Zafar-ul-Haq said that Iran is an important country of the region and close friend of Pakistan.
In an interview, he emphasised the need for further boosting ties between Iran and Pakistan.
However, he lambasted US foolish President Donald Trump for his insane and mistaken policy against Iran.
Most importantly, he called US unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) a big mistake. He said that withdrawal jeopardizing peace in the region and the entire international community.
Furthermore, he said US President Donald Trump’s insane policies are threatening the peace of the world.
Also, he called Trump a foolish person. Veteran senator said that Iran has remained a major trading partner of Europe for past many years. Due to that reason, Germany, France and UK with the support of other major countries of the world signed the JCPOA. They sought to enhance their economic ties with Iran through nuclear deal.
Moreover, he noted that Pakistan thought that the agreement would have a positive impact on Iran-US ties but that could not happen.
He said because of the aggressive policies of the Trump administration towards Iran it could not come to fruition.
“Accusing Iran for all problems in the world is a very big mistake by the US,” he said.
