Iran: Pakistan relations suffer after border guards killed
Relations between Tehran and Islamabad have soured after ten Iranian border guards were killed and three others injured in skirmishes with militants on 26 April near Mirjaveh in Sistan and Baluchestan province, on the border with Pakistan. The Jaish Ul-Adl group reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack. Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Bahram Qassemi said the Pakistani government “should be held responsible” for the attack, for letting the assailants operate from its territory.
