Border incident for Afghan nationals occurs inside Afghanistan’s soil: Iran

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi stressed that recent border incident for a number of Afghan nationals happened inside Afghanistan’s soil.

Mousavi issued a statement in reaction to reports released by the Afghan media about a deadly incident involving a number of Afghan citizens who were trying to make illegal entry into the Islamic Republic of Iran by crossing a border river.

Offering sympathy with the families of the victims, Mousavi said, “The incident has occurred on Afghanistan’s soil, and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Border Police has denied that any such incident has taken place on the soil of our country”.

“Considering the significance of the issue and in order to obtain detailed information about how the incident has occurred on the Afghanistan’s soil, we have been probing into the issue in cooperation with the officials of Afghanistan,” he added.
