'Iran, Pakistan not to allow saboteurs to damage mutual ties'

Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari says that Tehran and Islamabad will not allow the saboteurs to harm the bilateral relations between the two neighboring countries.

The Pakistani foreign minister made the remarks on Thursday in an exclusive interview with IRNA in reference to a Saturday terrorist killing of five Iranian border guards at the joint border with Pakistan.

Zardari vehemently condemned the terrorist incident and said that Iran and Pakistan are determined not to allow such plots to overshadow the bilateral relations of the two countries.  

Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs had earlier issued a statement to slam the terrorist attack and said that Islamabad is committed to cooperate with Tehran in the fight against terrorism.

The border guards were martyred in Saravan late on Saturday after terrorists raided a border security checkpoint in the region. The terrorists them retreated to areas in the territory of Pakistan.

As a result of the confrontation, five border guards were martyred and two others were wounded.
