An Iranian general has warned Pakistan about failing to take action to secure the countries’ mutual border and prevent "terrorists" from entering the Islamic Republic.
The warning comes a week after four members of the Iranian security forces were killed by unknown attackers in Saravan county in the eastern Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan which borders Pakistan.
"Every country should respect its commitments vis-à-vis its own internal security as well as that of neighboring countries," Iran’s official Fars news agency quoted Hussein Salami, a brigadier general, as saying Thursday.
Salami stated that Iran was not in favor of intervening in the affairs of any country but warned that if a neighboring state failed to fulfill its obligations to secure its frontiers, Iran would have no choice but to act.
Claiming that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had strong intelligence about "terrorist groups" in the region, Salami said: "Wherever terrorists are, even on the land of neighboring countries, Iran will find them."
Iran accuses Pakistan of implementing lax measures on border security and said terrorist groups were using Pakistan's border as a platform to launch offensives against the Islamic Republic.
Pakistan and Iran signed an agreement on border security management in February 2013 to boost cooperation to overcome terrorism, human trafficking and counterfeit currency.
