Lahore, Feb.9 (ANI): Iran has once again urged Pakistan to take strong actions against the hardcore Islamic militant group, Jundullah.

Speaking during a programme, Iran's Counsel General Saeed Khirazi said Tehran has already provided evidence regarding Jundullah's nefarious activities to Islamabad, and now it was its responsibility to take action.

"Activities of Jundullah are neither in the interest of Pakistan nor Iran," The News quoted Khirazi, as saying.

Jundullah (Soldiers of God) is engaged in activities against Tehran's Shiite ruled Sistan-Balochistan province bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Iran maintains that last year's terror attack targeting the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRG), which killed 42 persons, was carried out by perpetrators hiding inside Pakistan and has asked Islamabad to 'clarify' its stance over reports regarding its links with the banned terror group.

Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki had said that the Sunni rebel group, which carried out the deadly bombing, was based in Pakistan.

Pakistan, however, dismissed allegations of supporting the terror group, saying the attack was aimed at spoiling ties with Tehran. (ANI)
