Iran FM inaugurates Imam Khomeini street in Pakistan's Karachi

Iran’s foreign minister has inaugurated Shahrah-e-Imam Khomeini in Karachi, southern Pakistan, to commemorate the founder of the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

According to IRNA’s correspondent, the development came after Hossein Amirabdollahian paid a visit to the tomb of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the late leader and founder of Pakistan, in Karachi on the last day of his three-day official visit to the neighboring country on Friday.

The name-changing was carried out at the initiative of the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Karachi. The street was previously called Old Clifton Road.

As a result of the move, Imam Khomeini Road is now connected to Shahrah-e-Iran, which hosts the consulate generals of several countries, including Germany, the Czech Republic, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, and Afghanistan.

Accompanied by a high-ranking political and economic delegation, Amirabdollahian arrived in Pakistan on Wednesday to expand bilateral relations with the neighboring country.

On Thursday, the top Iranian diplomat and his Pakistani counterpart, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, signed a five-year strategic plan for commercial cooperation.
