Pakistan's Top General in Tehran Pakistan's Top General in Tehran

Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in Iran late on Sunday to hold high-level talks on various issues, including security of the common border. The four-star Pakistani general was received by Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri in a formal ceremony in Tehran on Monday, Tasnim News Agency reported. In their one-on-one meeting, the two commanders discussed closer military cooperation and joint efforts to ensure border security. Iran's top general has met several foreign counterparts in recent weeks to coordinate efforts in the fight against terrorism and the campaign to protect regional security. Islamabad pledged efforts to dispatch army troops to the joint border after a surge in cross-border terrorist attacks on Iranian border guards and security forces by militants operating inside Pakistan. In one of the deadliest such attacks in April, armed militants killed 10 Iranian border guards patrolling the border in Iran's Mirjaveh region. The Jaish al-Adl terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
