Pak politician for joint Iran-Pak action to eliminate terrorists at common border

Islamabad, Feb 16, IRNA - Pakistani politician and former member of Pakistan’s Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs says Iran and Pakistan must take joint actions to destroy the terrorist organizations operating on common border.

“Like all the other people in Pakistan, I strongly condemn the terrorist attack near Zahedan,” said Syed Tahir Hussain Mashhadi in a recent interview with the Islamic Republic News Agecy (IRNA).

Public Relations Department of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Headquarters in a statement has said 27 were martyred and 13 wounded in the Khash-Zahedan road terror attack.

The statement added the bus carrying IRGC border guards, who were on their way home after the end of a mission, was targeted by a suicide bomber.

Syed Tahir Hussain Mashhadi said that terrorist organizations which are operating on Pak-Iran border must be destroyed. They are terrorist organizations of the worst kind and under no circumstances they may be allowed to operate.

Former Senator said that terrorist’s headquarters must be destroyed and their financiers must be captured.

“These terrorists bring chaos in both Iran and Pakistan and they are trying to disrupt the brotherly relations between the two countries,” added the former lawmaker.

He viewed that people of the two brotherly countries of Iran and Pakistan have very close ties with each other which would be strengthened.

“These terrorists are cursed; they are barbaric, inhuman and they must not be allowed to operate in any circumstances and everybody on both sides of the border is asking for action against them,” Mashhadi viewed.

The politician said that both Iran and Pakistan should take more security measures on bordering areas to deter terrorists. “Such attacks are not good for either country,” noted the former Senator.

He went on to say that unfortunately there is mushroom growth of terrorists in our region due to vast amount of money coming in from Saudi Arabia and the drug money from Afghanistan.

“These terrorist organizations are extremely well financed and also the US and the Zionist regime are playing their dirty game and supporting these terrorist organizations, this is causing havoc for both of our countries,” he added.

He said terrorism is our common enemy and a common cancer which has to be removed from the body fabric.
