Iran protecting neighbors’ borders: Commander

Tehran, Jan 5, IRNA – Commander of Border Police Brigadier General Qasem Rezaei said Iranian guards are also watching the borders of the neighboring countries due to their weakness in controling the security condition along their territories.
Addressing a meeting here on Monday, Commander Rezaei underscored that security should be tightened along the borders with neighboring countries.

Iran is adjacent to 15 countries, he said, adding the Islamic Republic ranks first in terms of having the longest border point (8,855 km) among the nine regional states.

Last October, two Iranian border officers were killed and several guards were injured in southeastern Iran in an armed conflict with a group of bandits at Iran-Pakistan border.

Iran has repeatedly criticized its eastern neighbors for failing to rein in terrorists who cross the borders back into these countries after carrying out their attacks on Iranian soil.
