In the meeting with the Prime Minister of Pakistan that was held late on Tuesday local time in New York, President Hassan Rouhani welcomed the recent development in relations between the two countries, saying "the two nations are willing to have solid, permanent relations between Iran and Pakistan". He added that he was also a great admirer of Pakistan's democratic consolidation.

Pakistan has urged United Nations (UN) to appoint a special envoy on Kashmir and protect Kashmiris from Indian aggression.

Responding to questions from the media, Pakistans Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua said that the meeting was an "ice-breaker". According to the Pakistani leader, any intervention of India will only complicate the situation rather than resolving it. "So if they want to do that.and India has invested in Afghanistan in the past", he said.

"We don't foresee any political or military role for India in Afghanistan".

We are also ready to export electricity to Pakistan with the joint investment of other countries in the border areas with Pakistan, added the President.

Washington has intensified pressures on Pakistan regarding the presence of terrorist sanctuaries, specifically the Taliban and Haqqani terrorist network which are using the Pakistani soil to plan and carry out attacks in Afghanistan.

His statement invoked the reaction from the think tank moderator David Sanger who said that there was no nuclear arsenal in the world, other than North Korea's, that anxious United States more.

He also claimed that nobody wants peace in Afghanistan, more than Pakistan.

"This perception that there are sanctuaries is absolutely not correct..." He accused Pakistan of harboring terrorists staging deadly attacks against American forces in Afghanistan despite receiving billions of USA dollars in financial assistance.

After assurance from prime minister, Malala hoped that premier will become a champion of education in Pakistan. He also informed that now Hafeez is under house arrest and action will also be taken against him by the election commission for using his picture during an election campaign, which is illegal.

Responding to another question about statement of Indian Representative at the United Nations regarding Pakistan 's Kashmir stance, Nafees Zakaria said the statement reflects the respect that India has for the world body and its non-seriousness in commitment towards worldwide conventions and laws on human rights.
