Iran FM calls for joint anti-terror efforts with Pakistan

Iran’s foreign minister held a phone conversation on Friday with his Pakistani counterpart, calling for closer cooperation in various fields including fighting terrorism.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Iran attaches importance to brotherly relations with Pakistan in line with its neighborhood-first policy.

“It is appropriate to seriously follow security and military cooperation that was agreed upon and stressed by the two countries’ authorities in the past,” he said.

Stressing Tehran’s respect for Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, Amir-Abdollahian added, “Cooperation of the two countries to neutralize and destroy terrorist camps in Pakistan is essential.”

The top Iranian diplomat said the need for unity among Muslim countries is “felt more than ever” amid the genocidal Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

Amir-Abdollahian touched on the recent Iranian operation against the Jaysh al-Adl terrorist group in Pakistan, saying the operation was quickly carried out to neutralize an imminent terrorist threat.

He said Iran’s intelligence showed at the time that over fifty terrorists were preparing for anti-Iran terror attacks in Pakistan.

“Iran’s security forces in their operational bases confront any terrorist operation at the very beginning and do not allow terrorists to take operational action.”
