Islamabad’s 11th Avenue renamed ‘Iran Avenue’ on President Raisi’s visit

ISLAMABAD – Following Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s official visit to Pakistan, the federal government renamed Islamabad’s 11th Avenue as ‘Iran Avenue’ on Monday, symbolizing the growth and reinforcement of bilateral ties and goodwill between the neighboring nations.

According to details, the Interior Ministry wrote a letter to the Capital Development Authority (CDA) following the decision, requesting that the order to rename the roadway be implemented.

On Monday morning, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi arrived in Islamabad for his three-day visit to Pakistan.

When Raisi arrived at Nur Khan Airbase, Federal Minister Riaz Hussain Pirzada greeted him warmly.

This is the first visit by a head of state to Pakistan since the general elections in February 2024.

Raisi will meet President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Senate Chairman Yousaf Raza Gilani, and National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq during his visit to Pakistan, according to an official communique. He will also travel to Lahore and Karachi to meet with provincial leaders.

When the visiting dignitary arrived at the Prime Minister’s House, he was met with a guard of honour. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif personally greeted the Iranian president at the PM’s House.

The Iranian president is joined by his wife, the foreign minister, cabinet members, top officials, and a huge business delegation.

According to the Foreign Office, the two sides would pursue a broad agenda to strengthen Pakistan-Iran ties and collaboration in a variety of areas, including trade, connectivity, energy, agriculture, and people-to-people connections.
