Pakistan and Iran have decided that terrorists will not be allowed to use their soil for attacks on either of the countries, Radio Pakistan reported.
The two countries agreed to enhance joint border supervision through latest vigilance equipment to check cross border activities. The agreement comes after a three-day meeting of Pakistan-Iran Joint Border Commission in Quetta.
Drug, human trafficking: Pakistan, Iran agree on enhanced border control
Balochistan Chief Secretary Saifullah Chattah and Deputy Governor of Iranian province of Sistan-Balochistan Ali Asghar Mir Shekari signed five Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) in connection with border activities.
The Pak-Iran Joint Border Commission also agreed to establish five border markets, including Gabd Gwadar, Taftan, Panjgur, Washuk and Mand.
Further, the two nations also discussed proposal for rail-link between Pakistani port city of Gwadar and Iranian port city of Chahbahar.
“The proposed rail-link between Gwadar and Chahbahar would provide Pakistan access up to Europe,” Deputy Governor of Sistan-Balochistan Ali Asghar Mir Shekari said.
Last week, the Pakistan-Iran Joint Border Commission underlined the need for securing their porous border in an attempt to effectively check trafficking in drugs, weapons and illegal immigrants that triggers cross-border incursions and hence tensions between the two countries.
The understanding was reached at the 19th session of the commission in Quetta on Wednesday. Deputy Governor of the Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan Ali Asghar Mirshekari headed his country’s delegation and Balochistan Chief Secretary Saifullah Chattha led the Pakistani side at the talks.
Mirshekari said his country appreciated Pakistan’s efforts against terrorism and both the countries have to play their role to restore peace in the region.
