Iran asks Pak. to act against terrorists

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has demanded that Pakistan act “decisively against anti-Iranian terrorists” in a phone call with the country’s Premier, Tehran said, a month after a bloody attack on security forces. Iran says a Pakistani suicide bomber was behind the February 13 attack that killed 27 Revolutionary Guards in its volatile southeastern province of Sistan-Balochistan.

A Sunni jihadist group, Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice), which Tehran says operates mostly out of bases in neighbouring Pakistan, claimed responsibility for the blast.

Mr. Rouhani in the phone conversation on Saturday evening with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan called to maintain good ties and pointed the finger of blame at Tehran’s traditional regional and international foes.
