IRGC Offers Help for Pakistan in Border Control

General Qamar Javid Bajwa returned to Islamabad on Tuesday after a three- day visit to Tehran where he met Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rouhani, Defense Minister Brig.

Gen Bajwa also visited the headquarters of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) where he interacted with Iran's senior military leadership, read a statement issued by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). "Iran's policy is to develop cordial relations with neighbouring countries and Pakistan has a special place in the country's foreign policy", Hatami was quoted as saying by the ISPR.

Indeed this is the right approach to turn the border between the two countries into a one that of genuine peace, friendship and foil the attempts of those enemies who do not want warmth and close relations between the two immediate neighbours.
