Pakistan strongly condemns terrorist attack from across Iran border.

The Foreign Office (FO) on Thursday 'strongly condemned' the terrorist attack from across the Pakistan-Iran border in Balochistan's Panjgur district on Wednesday evening in which four security personnel were martyred.

During a weekly press briefing today, FO Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said, 'Pakistan strongly condemns the terrorist attack from across the Iran border.'

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) , militants used Iranian soil to 'target a convoy of security forces patrolling along the border' yesterday. Following the attack, Iran had been asked to hunt down the terrorists on their side, the ISPR had said.

Baloch asserted today, 'Terrorists used the territory of Iran [to conduct the attack]. We hope that Iran would take an action against the responsible factors.'

She said: 'We strongly commit that our territory will not be used for undertaking cross-border attacks in Iran and we expect the same from Iran.'

The spokesperson further said that both countries have 'exemplary brotherly relations'.
