Iranian, Pakistani Envoys to Return to Duties Following Cross-Border Tensions

The Iranian Foreign Ministry announced on Monday that Tehran and Islamabad have agreed that the two neighbors’ ambassadors to be reinstated to the capitals in the coming days after reciprocal attacks on border regions soured bilateral relations between the two states.

A joint statement by Tehran and Islamabad said following a telephone conversation between the foreign ministers of Iran and Pakistan, both sides agreed that Iran’s and Pakistani envoys will return to their places of mission by January 26.

An unprecedented turn of events took place between Iran and Pakistan last week when the neighboring nations exchanged cross-border attacks on “militant hideouts”.

At least ten people, children and women, were killed in the air strikes by Pakistan in the Saravan county in the Southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan on Thursday morning local time. It comes a day after Tehran pounded two main headquarters of the anti-Tehran terror group the so-called Jaish Al-Adl in Pakistan’s Southwestern province of Balochistan. Two key strongholds of the terrorist group in Pakistan have been obliterated through precision missile and drone strikes.

The statement also added that Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian will travel to Pakistan at an invitation by his Pakistani counterpart Jalil Abbas Jilani on January 29.
