Islamabad: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday said that Pakistan has decided to set up a border fence with Iran for maintaining security and peace.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Qureshi said that Pakistan has also decided to conduct aerial monitoring of the frontiers.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that prior to the visit of the premier to Iran as much as 20 terrorists backed by Iran-based militant organization conducted an attack within the land of Pakistan.

An alliance has come forward by the name of BRA which 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.

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.

He said PM Imran Khan will be speaking to Iranian officials about the placement of certain mechanisms to avoid such incidents in the future on his two-day visit to Iran. PM Khan leaves for his maiden visit to Iran tomorrow.
