Pakistan, Iran to discuss free trade agreement
With the free trade agreement, the trade between Islamabad and Tehran is expected to reach $5 billion per year in the following five years.
Previously, the two countries had signed a preferential trade agreement in September 2006 but the highest annual transaction made so far was $1.3 billion in 2012, which was further pulled down to $432 million after the US sanctions on Iran.
