President Raisi will have a meeting with the Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, as well as President Asif Ali Zardari. The Iranian president is also set to visit the cities of Lahore and Karachi, which are respectively the cultural and economic hub of Pakistan.

During his two-day stay, Iranian and Pakistani officials are set to sign several cooperation documents in trade and health as well as economic, security, judicial and agricultural fields.
