Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday admitted that Iran has suffered from terrorism by “groups operating from within Pakistan” and expressed his resolve to not allow militants to use Pakistani soil anymore.
“I know that Iran has suffered from terrorism which is from groups operated from within Pakistan,” the premier said while addressing a press conference along with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran.
While he asserted that Islamabad would no longer allow any militant groups to use its soil against anyone, PM Imran’s statement regarding terrorism in Iran is receiving mixed reactions on Twitter:
Peace is breaking out on Iran’s eastern front as PM Imran landed in Tehran on Sunday to strengthen trust between the two neighbouring countries on the invitation of President Rouhani.
According to reports, border security issues are on top of the premier’s agenda in Tehran as Pak-Iran relations have lately had a bad patch due to security issues along the border.
