Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran for West Asia Rasoul Mousavi announced on Twitter the opening of the additional border crossing, which would be the third between the two countries.
The border crossing would be opened in the presence of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who arrived in Iran on a three-day visit.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif had during his visit to Pakistan last November urged Pakistani authorities to open the Pishin-Mand border.
The two countries had in December inaugurated the Rimadan-Gabd border gateway.
Pakistan and Iran share a 959-km-long border. However, trade between the two countries has been negligible due to sanctions on Iran. The volume of bilateral trade is currently $359 million.
The two countries believe that setting up of border markets can help improve bilateral trade.
FM Qureshi soon after reaching Tehran tweeted that Iran had agreed to end restrictions on citrus imports from Pakistan.
“Always a pleasure to be in #Iran and I am pleased to share some good news for our citrus farmers. Following discussions, happy to announce that Iran has lifted restrictions on the import of Pakistan’s kinnow,” he said.
