Iran attaches great importance to the reinforcement of security on its borders, the eastern region in particular, an Iranian military commander said.

In an exclusive interview with Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) English Desk on Sunday, Iranian Border Guard Commander Brigadier General Qasem Rezaie said Iran enjoys full security in borders.

Commenting on the April deadly terrorist attack on eastern border areas Mirjaveh which claimed the lives of nine Iranian border guards, Rezaie said so far several meetings have been held with Pakistan border guard commanders to boost the security of the common region.

‘Iranian armed forces spare no efforts in bringing about peace and security in the country eastern frontier,’ Rezai added.

He went on to say that Iran enjoys good relations with its neighboring countries.

Nine Iranian border guards were martyred and two others injured by terrorists near Pakistan border in southeastern province of Sistan-Balouchestan on April 26, when they were patrolling at the zero border point. After the attack, the terrorists fled to Pakistan’s territories abducting one Iranian border guard.
