Militants kill 10 Iranian border guards in attack on frontier with Pakistan

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Qasemi on Friday summoned Ambassador to Iran Asif Ali Khan Durrani to lodge a protest over the killing of ten Iranian border guards in a militant attack on the Pakistan-Iran border earlier this week, IRNA reported.

According to the media outlet, Rouhani called on the Pakistani government to prevent such attacks in the future and prosecute the perpetrators in order to maintain close relations between the two nations.

"Our border guards had been targeted from inside Pakistan's soil", Iranian police speaker Saeed Montazerolmahdi was quoted as saying by the daily.

Ten border guards have been killed in clashes with outlaws in southeastern Iran.

Internet firms winding up for a fight on 'net neutrality'
Pai has been a critic of the FCC's approach to net neutrality, in which internet providers were classified as common carriers. And he has floated the idea privately to various companies and groups that could be affected by that change in policy.

Durrani expressed sorrow over the incident and loss of lives and ensured that Iran's message would be conveyed to the Pakistani government.

Also, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said his ministry "will spare no effort in following up the case through diplomatic channels to punish the terrorist thugs".

Tehran was categorical to say, "Unfortunately, Pakistan's borders with us (Iran) are the least safe ones, while we have tried to provide utmost safety on our borders with Pakistan".

In a visit to Pakistan in 2016, president Rouhani highlighted the importance of "implementing" bilateral security agreements, months after Sharif underscored in Tehran that his country was "resolute" to cooperate with the Islamic Republic to soothe its concerns over the border. The Army of Justice, which has previously attacked Iranian security forces, has claimed responsibility for the violence.
