Pakistan to recall ambassador from Iran after airspace violation: FO

The Foreign Office (FO) announced on Wednesday that the country is recalling its ambassador from Iran in the aftermath of missile and drone strikes conducted in Panjgur by Tehran’s forces.

Pakistan condemned the attack, describing it as an “unprovoked violation” of the Pakistani airspace, and warned Tehran of serious consequences. The FO had said in a late-night statement that the violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty was completely unacceptable.

The strikes, which Tehran described as bases for the militant group Jaish al-Adl, in the Panjgur district of Balochistan killed two “innocent children” and wounded three girls.

“This illegal act is completely unacceptable and has not justification whatsoever. Pakistan reserves the right to respond to this illegal act and the responsibility for the consequences will lie squarely with Iran,” said FO Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch in a brief statement.
