Border Police Chief Will Visit Afghanistan After Killing of Two Border Guards

The commander of Iran’s border police said he will visit  Afghanistan over a recent cross-border attack by armed assailants that killed two Iranian guards in southeastern Sistan and Baluchestan Province.
Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Saturday, Brigadier General Qassem Rezaei said he is to visit Kabul on Tuesday for talks with senior security officials regarding the killing of the border guards in Zabol, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The commander said he will also discuss cross-border interaction and efforts to implement earlier bilateral agreements on border control and security.  In clashes with armed militants in Zabol, over one ton of illicit drugs was captured, the commander said, adding that the two border guards were martyred during the fighting.
Militants attacked an outlying border police station in the southeast near the border with Afghanistan and Pakistan on Wednesday night, but security forces foiled their attempt to infiltrate.
Two soldiers were killed and three others were wounded in the raid. Iranian border patrol in the southeastern border regions are frequently attacked by terrorist groups and drug smugglers from Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Tehran has repeatedly called on the two neighbors to step up security at the common borders and prevent the criminal attacks.
