Larijani: Pakistan Should Answer for the Attack in Zahedan


Ali Larijani, the speaker of the Majlis (Islamic Republic parliament) warned the Pakistani government about the Jaish Ul Adl activities and said Islamabad must answer for the attack in Zahedan.

On Sunday, Larijani addressed Pakistan and said: “You must answer for this attack, as in why has this group planned executed this operation from your soil? With all due respect, you cannot act irresponsibly in this matter. These actions damage the relationship between the two countries.”

After a suicide bombing by Jaish Ul Adl group in Zahedan-Khash road which led to the death of 27 Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces, Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of IRGC accused Pakistani security forces of supporting Jaish Ul Adl. He also claimed that Saudi Arabia and Emirates were also involved in this attack.

President Hassan Rouhani has claimed that some of the countries in the region have supported the attack.

The supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, Ali Khamenei also claimed that there is a clear connection between the intelligence agencies of some countries and the perpetrators of the attack.

A Pakistani delegation arrived in Iran today to discuss this issue.
