Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said he would soon have “good news” for Iran as he spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani over telephone on Saturday, according to reports.
Prime Minister Imran’s remarks came after the Iranian president asked him to take “decisive” action against a militant group that claimed a deadly suicide attack in a border area.

A suicide bomber killed 27 members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards in mid-February. Jaish al Adl (Army of Justice) militant group had claimed responsibility for the attack.

“We are awaiting your decisive operations against these terrorists,” the Iranian president Rouhani said during the telephonic conversation with PM Khan. “We should not allow decades of friendship and fraternity between the two countries to be affected by the actions of small terrorist groups, the source of whose financing and arms is known to both of us,” Rouhani added.

According to Express tribune, the Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed his heartfelt condolences on the deadly terrorist attack. “Both leaders agreed on the need for closer cooperation among the two intelligence agencies in combatting terrorism.”
