IRGC chief: Pakistan expected to punish anti-Iran terrorists

February 16, 2019

TEHRAN – Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the IRGC, has said Tehran expects Islamabad to punish the terrorists behind a recent attack against its forces, which took place in the border province of Sistan-Baluchestan.

“If Pakistan does not live up to its obligations, the Islamic Republic of Iran, under international laws and regulations, is entitled to counter threats coming from the other side of country’s borders,” Jafari said, ISNA reported on Saturday.

He also threatened Saudi Arabia and the UAE for their support for terrorism, saying, “The treasonous governments of Saudi Arabia and the Emirates must know that the Islamic Republic’s patience has run thin and our system will not tolerate your clandestine support for anti-human criminals and Takfiri groups.”

The general added, “The government of Pakistan should also know that they must pay the price for giving sanctuary to terrorist groups.”
