Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday said his country would not allow its soil to be used against Pakistan, adding Tehran had provided Islamabad all the information in the Indian spy case. 

Zarif, who wrapped up his three-day visit after meeting Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and National Security Adviser Lt-Gen (retd) Nasser Khan Janjua, told a private news channel that Pakistan and Iran have developed understanding on key issues at the highest level.

Citing close cooperation between the two neighbours, Zarif revealed that two suicide attempts near the Pak-Iran border were foiled on Monday night.

“Last night we had two suicide attack attempts from the Pakistani territory into Iran. Both of them were foiled and we had excellent cooperation last night from the Pakistani armed forces in order to contain those. We are very happy with the level of cooperation that exists today,” Zarif added.
