Pakistani Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani, during a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian, asked that Tehran provide Islamabad with intelligence information about the positions and movements of terrorist groups in Pakistan, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“The Pakistani Foreign Minister emphasized that Iran’s security is also Pakistan’s security and if there is a threat on Pakistani soil against Iran, then Islamabad must take appropriate action. He also… asked Iran to provide Pakistan with information about terrorist groups in Pakistan as part of joint cooperation between the two countries,” a statement published on the Telegram channel of the Iranian Foreign Ministry said.
The night before, the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC, the elite units of the Armed Forces) announced that it had struck with ballistic missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles on the main base of the Jaish al-Adl terrorist group, located in the Pakistani province of Balochistan bordering Iran.
Pakistan strongly condemned the Iranian attack and on Wednesday recalled its ambassador from Tehran, also indicating that the Iranian ambassador would also not be able to continue his diplomatic mission in Islamabad for the time being.
