Meanwhile, the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said they discussed issues in the region including cooperation in Afghan process.

Balochistan, which borders Afghanistan and Iran, is Pakistan's largest and poorest province, rife with ethnic, sectarian and separatist insurgencies.

Addressing the business forum on Monday, TCCIMA head lamented that the $1-billion annual trade between Iran and Pakistan is not satisfactory at all, while the figure could be risen easily.

Pakistan and Iran also signed a memorandum of understanding for cooperation in the health sector. In March, Rouhani demanded Pakistan act "decisively against anti-Iranian terrorists".

Islamabad blamed the attack on the insurgency group Baloch Raaji Aajoi Sangar (BRAS) and said militants were operating from Iran, accusing Tehran of "inaction" against terrorists.
