“Pakistan can have closer cooperation with medical universities of Zabol, Zahedan and Iranshahr as they play crucial roles in implementing the two countries’ joint undertakings, given their proximity to Pakistan,” Namaki said in a meeting with Pakistani Deputy Health Minister Allah Bakhsh Malek in Tehran on Saturday.
He noted that Pakistan’s health and treatment issues are of high significance for Iran as the two countries can influence each other in controlling diseases and developing infrastructures of the health sector.
Pakistani deputy health minister, for his part, said that his country is keen on cooperation with Iran in the field of medical education.
“Pakistan is willing to cooperate with Iran in the field of developing infrastructures of health,” Malek added.
In a relevant development in late April, Tehran and Islamabad inked a document to increase mutual cooperation in health and treatment fields.
