The decision comes ahead of Iranian President Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi's official visit to Pakistan from April 22 to 24, marking it the first visit of any head-of-state since the February 8 general elections. According to the sources, the federal government has decided to change the name of Eleventh Avenue to Iran Avenue.
