Pakistan renames islamabad’s new highway to “Iran Avenue” in anticipation of Raisi’s visit

ISLAMABAD: In a display of unity with Iran, Pakistan has chosen to honor their brotherly relationship by naming a new Islamabad highway after the nation, as reported by The News on Monday.

The announcement precedes the upcoming visit of Iranian President Seyyed Ibrahim Raisi to Pakistan, scheduled from April 22 to 24. This visit will be the first of its kind by a head of state since the general elections held on February 8th.

As per the information available, the federal government has chosen to rename Eleventh Avenue as Iran Avenue. This decision was made by the cabinet after reviewing the proposal submitted by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) through circulation.

It is essential to mention that the CDA initiated the construction of Eleventh Avenue. In its initial phase, it was extended from Sector D-12 to the North-East corner of E-11, where a junction with Khayaban Iqbal was also built. In the subsequent phase, plans are in place to further expand it up to the IJ Principal Road.

President Raisi’s visit

In a significant diplomatic event, the Iranian President is scheduled to visit Islamabad today for a three-day official trip to Pakistan. Accompanying him will be his spouse, as well as a distinguished delegation consisting of the Foreign Minister and other cabinet members, high-ranking officials, and a substantial business group.

During his visit, President Raisi is scheduled to hold meetings with key figures such as President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Chairman Senate Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani, and Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.

Additionally, he will tour the cities of Lahore and Karachi, engaging with the regional leadership.

The extensive agenda for the meeting aims to significantly bolster the relationship between Pakistan and Iran, fostering collaboration in various sectors such as trade, infrastructure, energy, agriculture, and cultural exchange.

Additionally, the leaders will engage in discussions on regional and international affairs, focusing on joint efforts to counter the shared challenge of terrorism.
