Tehran, IRNA – Pakistan's former foreign minister's advisor on international law Sikander Ahmed Shah has advised Islamabad that greater engagement with Tehran, particularly in the area of energy security and counterterrorism, ensures Pakistan's need and prosperity.

Ahmed Shah said that Iran and Pakistan share common cultural, social, and geostrategic interests.
