Pakistan Should Address Border Insecurity

Pakistan Should Address Border Insecurity

Deputy Foreign Minister Hassan Qashqavi said Pakistan should address the issue of insecurity along the joint border, referring to the terrorist attack in a border area in Sistan and Baluchestan Province on Monday, in which eight Iranian border guards were killed, ISNA reported on Wednesday.
The terrorists, who are members of the so-called Jaish al-Adl group, fled to Pakistan after carrying out the attack.
“Under the signed understandings, Pakistan should hand the criminals over to Iran,” Qashqavi said, adding, “Pakistan should seriously address insecurities along its border with Iran.”
“At present, the burden of controlling and protecting the security of the borders in the southeast is only carried by Iran.”   
He also said the foreign ministry will particularly pursue the case, noting, “So far, numerous meetings have been held with Pakistani officials concerning the campaign against criminals and terrorism, and fortunately, we have reached good agreements and understandings.”
