A firing incident took place at the joint border between Pakistan and Iran as President Hassan Rouhani was paying a visit to Islamabad.
President Rouhani arrived in Pakistan on Friday and met his Pakistani counterpart Mamnoon Hussain, the country’s Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Rahil Sharif.
The two sides signed six documents on cooperation in various sectors during the two days of meetings.
President Rouhani departed Islamabad for Tehran on Saturday evening.
In the meantime, Pakistan’s Dawn news reported late yesterday that Iranian soldiers fired shells on Pakistani officials.
A report published on Dawn’s website states that the incident took place near Check Post 154 when a survey team was inspecting a disputed area.
According to the report, the survey was being conducted based on the decision of Pak-Iran Joint Border Commission to specify limits of the Check Post 154.
It adds that the survey was halted following the firing.
Iran has not yet commented on the report.
