Iran summons Pakistani envoy over attack on borders guards

Border Trade Exceeds 8m Tons

The Sunni Muslim militant group called Jaish al Adl, or the Army of Justice, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

After the attack, Iranian police said the guards were killed by long-range guns and "the Pakistani government bears the ultimate responsibility of the attack".

The province has a large Sunni community and has seen repeated attacks by Sunni militants against the security forces of mainly Shiite Iran.

In a visit to the southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan, Boroujerdi expressed deep sorrow over the deaths of 10 Iranian border guards in a recent terrorist attack that was launched from inside Pakistan. The assailants escaped into Pakistani territory immediately after the attack. "Unfortunately, Pakistan's borders with us are the least safe ones, while we have tried to provide utmost safety on our borders with Pakistan".

Iran's border with Pakistan has always been plagued by terrorist incursions in spite of security agreements with Islamabad, including one memorandum of understanding signed in 2014.


In his letter to the Pakistani prime minister, Rouhani made no explicit reference to any certain country, but accused regional countries of launching "proxy wars" and backing "terrorist acts, violence, and insecurity" to damage the Islamic world unity.

"Pakistan's safety, growth and efflorescence has always topped Iran's agenda of ties with the friendly and neighbouring country..."

According to The Guardian, the Iran Foreign Ministry's protest was strong and vociferous enough for Ambassador Durrani to offer his condolences and sympathy over the tragedy that took place on April 26, and to give an undertaking that he would flag Iran¹s concerns as soon as possible with the Government of Pakistan. "Iran's soil has never been abused against any of its neighbours, including Pakistan", he wrote.

Over the past decades, Iran's eastern and southeastern border had been the scene of clashes between Iranian security forces and armed drug smugglers on the one hand and security forces with the ethnic Sunni rebels on the other.
