Iranian forces have no authority to cross Pakistan’s borders: FO

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan said on Tuesday that Iranian forces have no authority to cross its borders as it is violation of the international law, urging Iran to respect Pakistan’s borders.

The statement came a day after Iran’s interior minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said that Iranian forces may enter Pakistani territory to free five border guards abducted by militants.

“If Pakistan is not able to provide its security, Iran will enter the country to protect its own security,” Iran’s Mehr news agency quoted Fazli as saying, adding that Iran has the right to intervene to protect its security and will not wait for Pakistan’s opinion on the issue.

The Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson Tasnim Aslam while reacting to the Iranian interior minister’s statement said on Tuesday that the two countries must respect each other’s borders.

The spokesperson said that Pakistan has already informed the Iranian authorities that Frontier Corps teams have intensively combed the entire region.

However‚ she said, it could not verify the entry or presence of these Iranian border guards on its territory.

According to Iranian media reports, the guards were seized on February 6 in the Iranian province of Sistan-Balochistan by militants who allegedly took them across the border to Pakistan.
