Iran and Pakistan to form rapid reaction force

Iran and Pakistan to form rapid reaction force

Pakistan and Iran will establish a joint border security force to respond to check violence along the countries' shared border, the Iranian president has announced, as Pakistan's prime minister concluded a two-day visit to the Iranian capital on 21 April.

Why forming a joint force?

Last week, at least 14 Pakistani security forces personnel were killed in a bus ambush that the Pakistani government blamed on Iran-based armed groups.

The incident came after a February attack in eastern Iran that killed at least 27 Iranian security personnel that Iranian authorities said was carried out by the Pakistan-based Jaish al-Adl group.

Border security was top of the agenda for Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit to Tehran, where he met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
