Islamabad: The lifting of economic sanctions on Iran will open "massive trade" opportunities for Pakistan, a senior has official said.

Syed Tariq Fatemi, prime minister`s special assistant for foreign affairs, said that both Pakistan and Afghanistan were committed to promoting dialogue between the Kabul government and Tali­ban, Dawn online reported.

Fatemi expressed the hope that Iran-Pakistan pipeline project would transform the energy markets of South Asia by bringing gas to the energy-starved region.

"We are convinced that it is the right thing," he said about the Iran`s nuclear agreement with the US. 

"An end to sanctions will open up new opportunities for Pakistan to enhance its commercial and economic ties with Iran."
