Iranian official to visit Pakistan over terror act

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 - 13:00

Iranian deputy Interior Minister will visit Pakistan to pursue the Saravan terror attack issue, Iranian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said, Iranian State IRINN TV reported.

Fourteen Iranian border guards were killed on Friday night and six wounded in a terrorist attack in the border city of Saravan in the country's south-eastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan . Three border guards were also taken hostage by the assailants.

Iran has delivered an official note of protest to Pakistan's chargé d'affaires in Tehran, Afkham said today at the weekly press conference in Tehran.

Iran is pursuing the implementation of the security pact and extradition treaty which was signed between the two countries, she underlined.

In February, Iran and Pakistan signed a security agreement under which both countries are required to cooperate in preventing and combating organised crime, fighting terrorism and countering activities which pose a threat to the national security of either country.

The Pakistani officials have condemned the attack, Afkham said, adding that Pakistani deputy Foreign Minister has emphasised the need to pursue the issue during a meeting with the Iranian ambassador to Islamabad.
