Pakistan urges Iran to share evidence on militants

ISLAMABAD, Oct 17 (DNA): Pakistan on Friday urged Iran to share evidence about the presence of Iranian militants on its soil and called for joint efforts to defeat terrorism.

The remarks came after a senior Iranian security official warned that Iranian forces can cross into Pakistan if the country fails to take action against the Iranian militants.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasnim Aslam in her weekly briefing in Islamabad said there are mechanisms between Pakistan and Iran to discuss incidents of terrorisms. She said both the countries are neighbors and enjoy good fraternal ties.

To a question regarding statement of Iranian Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, the spokesperson said, “We should not be reactive to such incidents, especially when there are no evidences. She urged Iranian side to share evidences of terrorism with Pakistan to root out this menace.”

Tasnim Aslam said last time allegations leveled against Pakistan in kidnapping of Iranian guards were proven wrong. She said that incident also took place in Iranian territories. She said terrorism is a global threat and we need a collective effort to combat it.

The Spokesperson said armed forces of Pakistan are successfully carrying out operation against terrorists.=DNA
