Iran supports peaceful settlement to differences in Pakistan

Tehran, Aug 25, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said Monday that Iran supports a peaceful settlement to current differences in Pakistan.

Underlining the need to respect democracy, Afkham called on all political parties in Pakistan to solve their dispute at the negotiating table.

 

Opposition leader Imran Khan and cleric Tahir ul-Qadri, who controls a network of Islamic schools and hospitals, have been leading protests in the capital Islamabad since Friday.

 

Both want Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign over allegations of corruption and election rigging. Sharif, who won the last election by a landslide, has refused.
