The chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces called on Pakistan to push for the release of Iranian border guards who were recently kidnapped at a border post and taken to Pakistan.  
In a phone conversation with Chief of Army Staff of the Pakistan Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Friday, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri reminded Islamabad of its duty to secure the release of border guards who were abducted by the Pakistani-based Jaish al-Adl terror group at a border post in Mirjaveh region in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan last week.
“Considering the bilateral agreements between the two countries’ armed forces on the security of common borders, we expect the Pakistani armed forces to take the necessary measures and push for the immediate release of the abducted soldiers and border guards,” the top Iranian commander said.
The Pakistani general pointed to his country's measures to capture the hostage takers, expressing hope that the security forces would soon arrest the kidnappers and free the abductees.
