The government of Iran said that it is ready to launch a ‘joint anti-terror operation’ with Pakistan three days after six FC troops lost their lives in an attack by the militants on Pak-Iran border in Balochistan.
According to the statement by Iran’s state-run TV, Iranian Foreign Minister Spokesperson Bahram Qassemi condemned on Monday the attack and said: “Iran is fully ready to take part in any joint campaign against the evil phenomenon of terrorism in all its forms and shapes in the region”.
As many as six paramilitary personnel were died and 14 others wounded on December 14 after the militants attacked the convoy of security forces.
Four terrorists were also killed in an exchange of fire between the security forces and militants. The responsibility of the attack was claimed by the outlawed Balochistan Liberation Army.
The FO spokesperson had claimed that the terrorists were operating from the Iranian border areas.
