Written by  Published by:Pakistan Views Thursday, 31 March 2016 12:40

TEHRAN: Iran on Thursday claimed that some elements are trying to spread ‘undignified’ and ‘offensive’ rumours to undermine relations between Tehran and Islamabad.

“During the past few days, some sections of Pakistani media have spread contents regarding detention of an Indian agent and the matter related to it, which could have negative implications on the fraternal and friendly atmosphere of Iran and Pakistan,” the Iranian Embassy in Islamabad said in a statement.

Last week, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made his first visit to Islamabad since assuming presidency. During Rouhani’s visit, Army chief General Raheel Sharif raised the issue of Research and Analysis Wing’s (RAW) involvement in Pakistan’s internal affairs, especially in Balochistan. “Sometimes [RAW] also uses the soil of our brother country, Iran. I request they should be told to stop these activities and allow Pakistan to achieve stability,” the army chief was quoted as saying during his meeting with the Iranian president.

However, the press statement clarified, “The Islamic Republic of Iran during seven decades since independence of Pakistan has always proved itself as a confident partner and neighbour for that country and the western borders of Pakistan have never been threatened.”

It further reiterated that Iran considers its borders with Pakistan as borders of peace and friendship. “Security of Iran is security of Pakistan and security of Pakistan is security of Iran,” the statement added quoting the Iranian president during his visit to Islamabad.
