Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi criticized Pakistan for failing to prevent the recent terrorist attack on the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces along the common borders, describing it as unacceptable to Tehran.
“It is not tolerable for us that the Pakistani government and army fail to prevent these evil and terrorist acts against Iran from inside its territory,” Qassemi told reporters at his weekly press conference in Tehran on Monday.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is willing to see that its common border with Pakistan is a border of friendship and peace, he said.
The spokesman further hoped that the Islamabad government would be able and willing to prevent such terrorist incidents.
Last Wednesday, 27 27 IRGC members were martyred and 13 others were injured when bus was hit by the suicide car bomb attack traveling between the cities of Zahedan and Khash, in Sistan and Balouchestan.
The IRGC’s Quds Base said in a statement that an explosives-laden car rammed into the bus, which was taking the personnel back to their homes.
The so-called Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said on Thursday there are clear links between the terror attack and spy agencies of some countries in the region and beyond, urging Iranian security organizations to seriously pursue the issue.
In a Sunday telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said his country is ready for any kind of cooperation with Iran to probe into the terrorist attack.
