Iran condemns terrorist attack on southeast border, urges Pakistan to act

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman has strongly condemned a Saturday terrorist attack in southeastern Iranian county of Saravan which led to killing of five Iranian border guards.

Nasser Kanaani said on Sunday that Pakistan, from which the terrorists had tried to illegally enter Iran, is expected to fulfill mutual agreements on countering terrorist groups.

Kanaani further urged Pakistani authorities to do more to ensure security along the joint border with Iran.

Iran believes that the terrorist attack on border guards was an attempt to damage cooperation and friendly relations between Tehran and Islamabad, especially after a May 18 visit by Pakistani Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif to Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan province, said the Iranian official. 

Sharif and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi opened two border projects on Thursday after they met on the border between Iran and Pakistan.
