“During the trip to Pakistan, we agreed to take measures to prevent vicious acts [in border areas] in the long run,” he said, adding that closer cooperation in securing the border is among the agreements. 
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Ground Force Mohammad Pakpour also traveled to Pakistan on October 22 to pursue the issue of Iranian border guards who had been kidnapped and taken into Pakistan by terrorists earlier that month.
