TEHRAN, Feb. 17 (MNA) – Iran’s Minister of Interior has said Iran will not wait for action by Pakistan government about terrorist groups.
Abdulreza Rahmani Fazli told reporters today that Iran would enter Pakistani soil if Pakistan did not act properly about the terrorist groups kidnapping and killing Iran’s border guards. “We had regular sessions with officials from ministries of foreign affairs and intelligence and diplomatic actions are underway in the ministry of foreign affairs,” told Fazli to reporters, and that “so far, we had 3 meetings with Pakistani border officials, and a session is scheduled also for today.”
Fazli maintained that in any event that harmed Iranian border guards taken hostage, Iran would enter Pakistani border to act on its own. “Pakistan and Afghanistan have been saved havens for terrorist groups and international gangs, so we see sometimes sabotage in our border with these two countries,” added the minister. “We have demanded Pakistan to provide security of its borders. We save the right to intervene for ourselves in the event that Pakistan does not act to secure borders,” he added.
