Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli and his Pakistani counterpart Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan discussed improving borders security in a phone call.

“The recent terrorist attack against Iranian border guards serving on the Iran’s southeastern frontier near the town of Mirjaveh was not expecting considering the cordial relation between the two countries,” Rahmani Fazli said during the phone call.

On April 26, ten border guards of Mirjaveh county in Iran's Sistan-Baluchestan province were killed in an ambush by terrorists along the Pakistani border's zero-point.

“We are ready to hold the meetings of special committee on security and border committee as soon as possible,” he emphasized.

“Economic interactions in border areas can lead to lasting security on the common border but such incidents along the border destabilize the basis for economic, trade and security cooperation,” Rahmani Fazli said as urging development of economic interactions and border trade cooperation.

He said Islamabad should prevent the filtration of terrorists into Iran, the smuggling of narcotics and illegal crossing of Afghan nationals from Pakistani border to Iran.

Rahmani Fazli also invited Nisar Ali Khan to visit Tehran and said, “we are ready to hold a conference on security, economic and border issues as soon as possible”.

The Pakistani minister, for his part, said his country was resolved to implement bilateral agreements, adding that the Pakistani prime minister had tasked him with implementing the agreements reached between the two countries.
