TEHRAN, Feb. 18 (MNA) – Chairman of Iran-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group said Pakistani ambassador voiced her country’s commitment to combat terrorism following the recent terror attack in Zahedan carried out by terrorists residing in Pakistan.

Ahmad Amirabadi Farahani, Chairman of Iran-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Group, told Mehr News correspondent about his phone conversation with Pakistani ambassador about Zahedan terrorist attack on a number of IRGC personnel, saying “we demanded that Pakistani government implement its commitments toward combating terrorist groups present on the country’s soil.”

He added that he conveyed Iranian lawmakers’ concerns about Pakistani army’s lack of a decisive and proper confrontation with terrorists present in some areas of the neighboring country, who sometimes cross into Iran and carry out terrorist acts.

“The Pakistani ambassador promised that her country would take action against terrorists, and stressed that none of these terrorist groups are supported by Islamabad,” he added.

Meanwhile, Iranian foreign ministry summoned Pakistani Ambassador to Tehran, Rafat Masoud, on Sunday, over the 13 February terrorist attack on a number of IRGC personnel in Zahedan, which killed 27 guards and injured dozens of others.

During the meeting, Iran demanded that Pakistan not allow terrorist groups to exasperate insecurity and distrust between the two countries, and take immediate and necessary measures to identify and arrest the perpetrators of the Wednesday terrorist attack.
