At least Dubai blocks SIP. I don’t know about Pakistan, but they could also block SIP.
Solution - VPN and SIP over VPN or you can try using IAX - some voip phones could use IAX.

Thanks for the reply Bira_more, Any recommendation for Sip over vpn

We did vpn over ssh using instructions like provided here:
tldp.org/HOWTO/ppp-ssh/
And over that vpn we did communication between 2 asterisks, and to each of them there were SIP phones connected.
Some SIP phones have vpn clients. You should do only server part on US side, and if you use such phones - then it will be easier.
Or - you will need special server in Pakistan to make vpn.
Be aware - in Dubai this was prohibited by law (we did our sip over vpn in other country).

Just change your SIP port number. I am also living in Toronto. You can call me for Asterisk related issues.
