The spokesman comments came after the governor of the Iranian Sistan and Baluchestan Province, "Ahmad Ali Mohabati," said in a meeting with the heads of the Sistan and Baluchestan tribes on Thursday morning that the enemies were trying to endanger the security of the province and were doing everything they could in line with that purpose.

The provincial governor also said that "Unfortunately, if someone has done something wrong, it will be dealt with," adding that "Unfortunately, three people were killed in the Saravan border incident, two of them in Pakistan and one in Iran, but foreign media covered the incident as if a carnage had taken place in Saravan."
