Pakistan says fencing of border with Iran to be completed by end of this year

Islamabad, June 4, IRNA -- Pakistani Interior Minister says fencing work on joint border with the Islamic Republic of Iran is in full swing and would be completed by the end of 2021.

Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad in a video message on Friday before traveling to the zero point of the border with Afghanistan in North and South Waziristan says the government is determined to make the borders safe and secure.

He added so far, 44 percent fencing work on border with Iran has been completed while the whole border would be fenced by the end of 2021.

The Pakistani interior minister said the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan is committed to strengthen border security by using electronic technology for effective border management.

Earlier Pakistan’s military spokesman during a news conference at the army headquarters in Rawalpindi had said that the plan to fence the country's border with Iran was continuing, adding: "We have received very promising results from the joint border control and fencing project."

During his 11th official visit to Pakistan in November last year, Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran was satisfied with the actions of Pakistan and its army to ensure security and guard the common borders.
