This is new to me ..so what happened to fear of "sanctions"

The ceiling of coal exports to Pakistan has not been determined yet but it seems Pakistan to import 500,000 tons of coal annually from Iran. :

Full report:

Coal Exports to Pakistan Begin


A member of Iran-Pakistan Joint Chamber of Commerce says exports of coal from Iran to Pakistan have started, admitting that the barter trade with Pakistan has not been operationalized yet.
TEHRAN (Iran News) –A member of Iran-Pakistan Joint Chamber of Commerce says exports of coal from Iran to Pakistan have started, admitting that the barter trade with Pakistan has not been operationalized yet.
Speaking to ILNA, Ali Rigi Mirjaveh said that Pakistan government has asked its traders to import all of its required goods from Iran and it has been decided Pakistan to import required coal from Iran. He added that the ceiling of coal exports to Pakistan has not been determined yet but it seems Pakistan to import 500,000 tons of coal annually from Iran.
He went on to say that trade between Iran and Pakistan through barter has not been operationalized yet, adding that currently the trade between Iran and Pakistan is something like barter and it means Iran exports goods to Pakistan and in return it imports goods and the trade in dollar form has been almost eliminated.
Rigi stated that currently the border market is in good condition and the chamber is working to increase the trade volume of Iran and Pakistan to $5b but currently the figure stands at between $1.5b to $2b.
He also said that challenges ahead of bartering Iran’s apple with Pakistan have been resolved, adding that to date Iran has not succeeded in exporting apple to Pakistan because it was decided apple to be exported in exchange with importing tangerine, reiterating apple has not entered the market yet but next month exports of apple and grape to Pakistan will start.
Rigi also pointed to devaluation of Pakistan’s rupee against the U.S. dollar and said that in the past months each dollar was traded for 150 rupees but today each dollar is traded for 240 rupees and this has created challenges for exports between the two states.
He then pointed to the destruction of road construction in Pakistan due to recent floods in this country and said that Iranian trucks can go to Gwadar in Pakistan while before the floods happen, they could go to Karachi and Lahore because according to Pakistan’s approved laws, foreign trucks can only move into the country for 80 kilometers.
Rigi said that perishable goods should be carried with refrigerator trucks but in Pakistan it is carried with normal trucks.

Pakistan has already hit rock bottom. Nobody can do anything to us.
when you do great injustice (getting paid by uncle Sam to remove the elected president) you must expect the wrath of god

joke a side I say Pakistan is far from at rock bottom only you need to decide to work for interest of the country not the interest of some fat corrupt politician or power hungry warlord the country itself have vast amount of resources and potentials .

We have devil worshippers in power. In Iran, your country goes crazy over the death of one girl. In Pakistan, people get abducted, killed daily, suffer through natural disasters and the people don't bat an eyelid.

Well if Pakistan has to go down importing, it might as well waste all it’s forex reserves on a brotherly country such as Iran.
I guess this is what Mir Bajwa and his merry band of Chor commanders were missing in 3.5 years of IK, they are hooked on imports, without which they don't make their cut.

And BTW, Iran is not a brotherly country anymore or any less as any country out there, it is a source of plenty of mischief in Pakistan and has been a long time ally of Hindutva bharatis

I think comparatively out of all our neighbors Iran has been the best of them all.

Premiere mischief creator for Pakistan is our very own establishment, then India, Afghanistan and in that order.

Iranian sponsored death squads have taken out plenty of Pakistanis and their unchecked recruitment of Pakistanis to fight their proxy wars abroad who then come back to Pakistan to create mayhem, as well as their sponsorship/support for BLA as well as RAW's operations in Pakistan are known and accepted facts.

Uzair Baloch had an Iranian passport and was routinely going back and forth from Iran with full diplomatic cover. Kulbhashan Yadev was operating of Iran and was using their soil as a launching pad for terrorist attacks in Pakistan.

To those asking why Pakistan imports coal despite having big coal reserves.

Pakistani Coal in Thar is absolutely rubbish and of poor quality. So it's not worth it.
