Finance Minister Asad Umar, further said in an address to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the northwestern city of Peshawar that Pakistan needed to increase trade with Iran and Afghanistan with complete focus, IRNA reported.
He revealed that during Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit to Turkey earlier this year, Islamabad and Istanbul had agreed on working on a strategic economic framework.
"I said to the Turkish vice president that this framework should not just be limited to us. Our vision for the next 10, 20 years should be for Iran to become a part of this economic framework as well," he said.
"Iran, Pakistan and Turkey should obviously be a part of it," the minister added.
