Rouhani calls on Pakistan to prosecute terrorists to save ties

TEHRAN, Apr. 28 (MNA) – President Rouhani called on Pakistani PM to persecute perpetrators of the terrorist attack that killed 10 Iranian border guards at Mirjaveh in order to preserve the friendly ties between the two countries.

Following the martyrdom of 10 Iranian border guards by Takfiri militants on Wed. in a cross-border attack on the frontier with Pakistan at Mirjaveh in Sistan-Baluchestan province, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a message to express his deepest concern and regret over the repeat of terrorist attacks launched from Pakistan inside the Iranian territory, calling on the Pakistani government to order the prosecution of the perpetrators of the attack to preserve and promote the good and friendly ties between the two countries.

“The Iranian territory has never been invaded by its neighbors including Pakistan, but regrettably, lack of appropriate measures and necessary prosecution on the part of Pakistani government have caused great loss of lives and property for the Islamic Republic of Iran,” President Rouhani said in the message.

He went on to remind Prime Minister Sharif of similar attacks from Pakistani militants and terrorist groups against Iran, voicing regret over the repeat of such tragic incidents despite many promises from Pakistani officials.

“Unfortunately, today certain countries have targeted the unity of the Muslim world by waging proxy wars, and sponsor terrorist attacks with an aim to replace prosperity and welfare of regional people with violence, insecurity, poverty and backwardness,” Rouhani said.
