Islamabad, IRNA -- A member of Pakistan's Punjab assembly affiliated with Pakistan Muslim League-N, second largest political party in the country has stressed the need to further expand bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran in cultural, economic and political fields.

In this regard, with careful planning and the provision of the necessary facilities by the two countries, the people of Iran and Pakistan can enhance tourism in the two countries.

Director of Iranian Cultural Center in Lahore Jafar Ronas said the cultural roots between the two countries are much more colorful than the political and economic roots.

"Considering the rich capacities that exist between the two neighboring and brotherly countries of Iran and Pakistan both countries can achieve common cultural goals in the region,” he said.

In this regard, various programs were organized thorough cooperation of cultural organizations and institutions in Lahore."

Explaining the governmental structure of the Islamic Republic of Iran, he said after the glorious victory of the Islamic Revolution led by Imam Khomeini, religious democracy was established in Iran through referendum.

He said the Iranian people elect the president and members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly by direct vote after four years.
