COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa called on Chief of the Armed Forces of Iran Maj Gen Bagheri on Monday, says a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

A recent terrorist attack on the Pakistani security forces resulting in martyrdom of six security personnel near the Pak-Iran border also came under discussion during the meeting, says the Pakistan Army’s media wing.

Both commanders resolved to enhance security measures on either side of the border. COAS Bajwa said that Pakistan has started fencing the border, but would require cooperation to ensure border security and stem smuggling activity which is also used by terrorists and narco traffickers for covering their movement.

The commanders also discussed Covid-19 and the need to improve border terminals to address such issues. COAS Bajwa reiterated Pakistan’s desire for regional peace and stability on the basis of mutual respect, non-interference and equality, the ISPR press release concluded.
