Pakistan ambassador summoned over terror attack on border guards

Tehran, April 28, IRNA – Iran summoned Pakistan ambassador to Tehran over terrorist attack on Iranian border guards which claimed the lives of nine soldiers and injured two others.

Iran's protest on the terrorist attack was conveyed to Ambassador Asif Ali Khan Durrani, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Friday.

'We strongly expect Pakistan government to adopt serious measures for arrest and punishment of terrorists,' the ambassador was told.

“Unfortunately, Pakistani side of Iran’s borders are the most insecure ones and we expect Islamabad to honor its previous promises and prevent repetition of such attacks,” Durrani was also told.

Meanwhile, the ambassador expressed sorrow over the terrorist incident and insured that he would convey Iran’s message to the Pakistani government.

Armed bandits affiliated to the so-called Jaish ul-Adl (Army of Justice) terrorist group attacked the Iranian border guards from the Pakistan’s soil on April 26, killing 11 Iranian border guards, including 3 officers and 8 privates in an ambush in Mirjaveh region some 75 km to the eastern Zahedan, capital city of the Sistan-Baluchestan province, neighboring Pakistan.
