Iran summons Pakistan ambassador over terrorist attack

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has summoned Pakistan’s ambassador to Tehran, expressing the Islamic Republic’s “strong protest” to Islamabad over a deadly terrorist attack that targeted a group of security forces in southeastern Iran.

According to the ministry's press release on Sunday, Pakistani Ambassador Riffat Masood was called in for a diplomatic rebuke over a car bomb attack that targeted members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province on Wednesday.

The attack killed 27 IRGC members and wounded 13 others, and the so-called Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group claimed responsibility for the bombing. Iranian officials say the group plotted the attack in and moved to carry it out from inside Pakistan.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said that Ambassador Masood had been informed that the Iranian government expected the Pakistani government and military to take “decisive and serious” action against the bases, movements, and entrenchment of terrorist groups along Pakistan’s border with Iran.
