Iran summons Pakistani envoy over Zahedan terror attack

TEHRAN, May 30 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry on Saturday summoned Pakistan’s ambassador Muhammad Bakhsh Abbasi over deadly bombing in Zahedan, a city near the border with Pakistan, which left 25 people dead and 120 wounded.

The decision came after the Rigi group, whose operatives have a history of fleeing into Pakistan after doing vicious and terrorist acts, claimed responsibility for the explosion in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan-Baluchestan province.


The Foreign Ministry protested a continued activity by hooligans and terrorists along Iran-Pakistan border.


Abbasi vowed to inform Pakistan’s officials of the matter as soon as possible. The ambassador denounced such incidents and reaffirmed Islamabad’s commitments in cracking down on such groups.
