Sidhu said the Kargil War took place after former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's 1999 visit, while the Pathankot attack in 2016 happened after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's return.

Zarif also held separate talks with Pakistan' Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and called for expansion of relations in various spheres.

He stressed the importance of improving mutual relations at regional and global levels, saying the two countries must further strengthen cooperation in the sectors of border security and banking as well as cooperation between Iranian and Pakistani ports of Chabahar and Gwadar. "I will lead Pakistani delegation", Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters on Tuesday evening.

US President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the agreement this year and announced the re-imposition of economic sanctions that had been lifted as part of the deal.

Prime Minister Khan said that "Pakistan is facing external and internal challenges but with support of the nation and through a cohesive national approach, we shall successfully overcome these", according to the statement.

"Timely and proactive cooperation by Iran in providing such access facilitates implementation of the Additional Protocol and enhances confidence", it said.

Pakistan on Sunday kicked off the "Plant for Pakistan" campaign by Prime Minister Imran Khan who in the drive planted a sapling in the country's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

After his return from Pakistan last month, Mr Sidhu said, there was controversy in India, but the new Pakistan prime minister said "they want peace".

He stressed that he wanted to improve relations with the neighbouring countries, including India.

Zarif started his tour of Pakistan on Thursday.
