Iran boosting border cooperation with Pakistan, Turkey: Cmdr
Ilam, The Iranian Border Guards commander said that the ties and coordination between border guards of Iran and Pakistan and Turkish border guards have been improved and promoted due to the expansion of bilateral relations.
Brigadier General Qasem Reza'i said here on Monday that Iran after China and Russia has been ranked third in terms of the number of neighbors in the world, with a total of 8,755 kilometers of common border with their neighbors, of which this amount 2,700 kilometers is the maritime border. In terms of security indicators, we are in good condition.
He highlighted, 'No country as the Islamic Republic of Iran is facing peripheral threats, given the characteristics of countering the arrogant power, but with the vigilance of the security forces, military and law enforcement, and especially border guards, we face the least.'
The border guards commander noted that one of the main problems of Iran in the border area over the past years was on the borders with Pakistan, because the security dominance of this country in the Balochistan region of the country was low, which has been the factor for infiltration of the terrorists and criminal to this area.
The commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Border Guards had said that Iran has no concern over common maritime and land borders with the neighboring countries despite the threats close to the borders.
Brigadier General Qasem Reza'i said in Ahwaz last Tuesday that the morale of the border guards in protecting and safeguarding the borders has caused not to have concern about border security, but 'we are still ready to deal with possible contingencies of insecurity on the borders'.
