It should be noted that the Iran foreign minister is visiting Pakistan at a time when relations between the two countries have been tense for some time.
The tension between the two countries started when 2 innocent children were killed and 3 girls were injured as a result of an attack by Iran in Pakistan’s airspace on January 17.
Less than 48 hours after Iran violated its airspace, Pakistan launched an attack on terrorist hideouts in the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchistan in the early hours of January 18, in which several terrorists were killed.
On January 19, Pakistan’s Caretaker Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani and his Iranian counterpart Amir Abdul Hayan had a second telephone conversation after these events.
The Pakistani ambassador to Iran, Mudassar Tipu, confirmed the incident and said that he is deeply shocked by the horrific killing of 9 Pakistanis in Sarawan.
The Pakistani embassy will provide full support to the bereaved families and requested Iran to cooperate in the investigation of the killing of the Pakistanis.
