Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan and Iran aim to increase annual trade volumes between the two countries to 5 billion Dollars by 2021.

Sharif spoke at a business conference with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who arrived in Islamabad on Friday for two-day talks focused on increasing Pakistan's electricity imports from Iran, boosting trade relations and reviving plans for a gas pipeline between the two countries.

Most of the western sanctions were lifted in January in return for Iran complying with a deal to curb its nuclear ambitions.
