Iran, Pakistan continue anti-terrorism cooperation

TEHRAN, Jan. 23 (MNA) – Saying that Iran and Pakistan share a common view on defending each other's nations, the Pakistani defense minister stated that the interactions between Tehran and Islamabad continue to deal with terrorism.

"Iran and Pakistan are brother countries and our hearts beat for each other," Khawaja Muhammad Asif stated in a press conference on Monday.

Referring to the issue of terrorism on Pakistan's borders with Afghanistan and the use of terrorist elements from Afghanistan's territory, Asif added, "Pakistan, along with Iran and Afghanistan, will never allow its territory to be used against its neighbors."

Islamabad is in contact with Tehran and the two countries will not allow the terrorists to create danger against their land and people, he added.
