Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan will pursue a common vision for regional peace, says a statement after a trilateral ministerial meeting.

The agreement was made after the meeting between Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister, Mohammad Mehdi Akhundzadeh, the Afghan Deputy Foreign Minister, Mohammad Kabir Farahi, and Pakistan's Foreign Secretary, Salman Bashir, in Islamabad on Friday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The officials agreed on pursuing a common vision for peace, security, stability and prosperity in the region by enhancing partnership based on mutual interest and respect and in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Charter.

The officials also agreed on imparting a strong impetus to trilateral cooperation in the political, economic, development, reconstruction, cultural and social fields.

In the regional context, the three sides underscored their strong resolve to fight terrorism and extremism, combat narcotics and organized crime, and promote trans-regional development cooperation.

The pledge was made in pursuance of the decision taken by the leaders of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran at their trilateral meeting on the sidelines of the ECO Summit in Tehran on March 2009.

The Ministerial meeting will set the date for the next trilateral summit to be held in Tehran.
