|Islamabad vows to help free abducted Iranian border guards||
TEHRAN – The Iranian interior minister says Islamabad has vowed to seriously pursue the fate of the five abducted Iranian border guards.
“We are pursuing the issue seriously and we have conducted a number of meetings with Pakistani officials in this regard and they have vowed to positively cooperate with Iran,” Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli told reporters in Tehran on Sunday.
“Since Pakistan is a friendly and neighboring country of us, and we have good cooperation with them, we should settle our issues in a calm atmosphere,” he added.
He added that Tehran has submitted the required evidence and documents to the relevant Pakistani officials, expressing hope that Islamabad would seriously pursue the issue.
The Iranian guards were abducted in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan on February 6 and were transferred to Pakistan. Later, the so-called Jaish-ul-Adl terrorist group posted photos of the five men on twitter and claimed responsibility for the abduction.
