Pakistan PM Khan meets Iran's Supreme Leader

Iran and Pakistan have suffered the most losses because of insecurity in Afghanistan, he said, adding, "One of the joint goals of the two countries can be close cooperation for establishing stability in Afghanistan".

Iran and Pakistan have had cordial relations over the years.

Over the weekend, Islamabad accused Iran-based terrorists of killing 14 Pakistani troops in volatile Balochistan, RFE/RL notes. Washington has repeatedly accused Pakistan of harboring jihadis. "We expect Tehran to take action against these entities", Qureshi stated.

Groups operating within Pakistan's and Iran's Baluchistan provinces, which share a long border, seek independence from both countries.

"Pakistan has made a decision to fence off its border with Iran". "We informed the Iranian officials that we had nothing to do with those attackers", said the villager, who asked not to be identified, "but they did not listen to us, so I left my home five years ago". The Rahbar conveyed his deep regard and attachment with the brotherly people of Pakistan and prayed for the success of the Pakistani nation.

"We are glad that the Pakistani side now recognizes groups with such inhumane conduct as terrorist and treats them as such".

"Actionable intelligence after investigations has been shared with Iranian authorities".

Meanwhile, Pakistan and Iran signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to cooperate in the health sector.

During his visit to Tehran, Khan proclaimed that terrorism incidents plague the relationship between the two countries. A local news channel quoted Qureshi as saying the prime minister would discuss the terrorist attack with the president of Iran.

The president of Iran also accepted an official invitation extended by Prime Minister Imran Khan for a visit to Pakistan.

PPP MNA Hina Rabbani Khar, who has previously served as the country's foreign minister, was unforgiving in her criticism of Prime Minister Imran's statements.

He stressed that the armed groups should not be allowed to use Iran or Pakistan soils for terrorist activities. Cross-border attacks are a burning issue haunting both countries.

The United States has designated Iran a state sponsor of terrorism and labeled a branch of its military, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a foreign terrorist organization.

In Iran, Baloch militant groups such as Jaish ul-Adl, or Army of Justice, are fighting for Sunni rights.

Two months later, the April 18 attack inside Pakistan forced the issue. "It's costly, but doable", Ishtiaq Ahmed, an assistant professor at Quaid Azam University in Islamabad, told The Media Line.
