Iranian land used in terrorism activities in Balochistan, Pakistan takes important decision
*ISLAMABAD - Pakistan will be fencing its 950 kilometre-long border with Iran to maintain security and peace, says Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.*
An alliance has come forward by the name of BRA, said Qureshi. He was speaking to the media in Islamabad on Saturday This alliance has taken responsibility for the terror attack on the Makran Coastal Highway in Ormara, a remote area in Balochistan, which claimed the lives of 14 passengers on April 18 after offloading them from passenger buses.
Mohsin Hassan Butt, inspector-general of the Balochistan police, had said that around 15 to 20 gunmen wearing camouflage uniforms stopped up to six passenger buses travelling between Gwadar and Karachi and shot 14 passengers dead.
Qureshi said these gunmen were from the BRA which was based in Iran. The trading and logistical camps of this new alliance are based in Iran. “We have shared actionable evidence with Iran and taken them into confidence over the matter,” said Qureshi.
The locations of the camps have been shared with Iran, he said, hoping that Iran – a brother country of Pakistan – takes action against the BRA. He also appealed to Afghanistan to take action as the alliance is also present there.
