Iran cautions Pakistan
(PressTV-July 1, 2008)
Iran's Prosecutor General urges neighboring Pakistan to take necessary measures to prevent terrorists from taking shelter in the country.
Qorban-Ali Dorri Najaf-Abadi said Tuesday that Tehran has already cautioned Islamabad to take necessary steps to stop Pakistan-based terrorists who operate in Southeastern Iran.
Abdolmalek Rigi, the ringleader of the Jundallah terrorist cell, has claimed responsibility for the assassination of Ibrahim Karimi, the Deputy Prosecutor of Saravan city in Sistan-Baluchistan Province. Jundullah, which operates in Iran's Sistan-Baluchistan and Pakistan's Balochistan, has carried out a number of attacks against high profile Iranian targets, especially government and security officials.
The ABC news reported in 2007 that the terrorist cell has been 'secretly encouraged and advised' by American officials since 2005. Dorri Najaf-Abadi said Iran hopes that Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf and his government would respond to Tehran's demands. He added that if such terrorist groups continue to operate in southeastern Iran and inside Pakistan, the region would be destabilized. When asked if Tehran had contacted Pakistani officials, the prosecutor general said a letter of warning had been sent to Islamabad last week.
