Nine Pakistani nationals were killed by gunmen in Iran’s border area

Last week, neighbors Pakistan and Iran announced that their ambassadors would return to their posts by January 26.

This morning, the two colleagues discussed bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (FO), both emphasized the importance of strong communication and cooperation as a way for a positive, forward-looking and upward path in bilateral relations.

“The parties also agreed to work towards the promotion of mutually desired goals of peace and prosperity based on mutual respect and a collective approach to solving common problems,” the FO said.

The incident comes two weeks after the two neighbors saw a sharp escalation in regional tensions in Pakistan after self-described militant group Jaish al-Adl targeted its bases in Panjgur, a town on the Balochistan border.

The move drew sharp condemnation from Islamabad and a breakdown in diplomatic ties. Pakistan has announced that it will recall its ambassador and expel Iran’s ambassador in response to Iran’s unjustified violation of Pakistani airspace.

Less than 48 hours after the airspace violation, Pakistan launched precision strikes against Iran using killer drones, missiles, ammunition and small arms.

Following the Pakistani strikes, Iran summoned Pakistan’s charge d’affaires to protest the attack.

The strikes by the two countries were the highest-profile cross-border raids in years and raised concerns about wider instability in the region since the Oct. 7 war between Israel and Hamas.

Militant groups operate in an area that includes Pakistan’s southwestern Baluchistan province and Iran’s southeastern Sistan-Baluchistan province.

Both are peaceful, rich in minerals and mostly underdeveloped.
