After India carried out air strikes against terror camps inside Pakistan, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to take action against the al-Qaeda linked Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group.
It need be mentioned that tensions between Iran and Pakistan escalated last month following the deadly attack on a bus carrying Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) servicemen which killed as many as 27 and left 13 others wounded.
Iran suspects two Pakistani nationals for involvement in the crime.
Jaish ul-Adl had claimed responsibility for the ghastly attack which happened on a highway in eastern Iran near the Pakistani border.
The Iranian President said, “We should not allow decades of friendship and fraternity between the two countries to be affected by the actions of small terrorist groups, the source of whose financing and arms is known to us both.”
The Pakistan Prime Minister had retorted that Pakistani forces had closed in on the terrorists’ hideouts and that there would soon be “good news” for Iran, reported Sputnik.
Earlier, the Commander of the IRGC Ground Force, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour stated that the suicide bomber involved the suicide attack was from Pakistan.
