Indian spy’s arrest: Iran slams media for ‘undignified rumours’
Iranian Embassy in Pakistan on Thursday slammed a section of media for spreading ‘undignified’ and insulting’ contents regarding the arrest of an Indian agent, declaring that it could have negative impacts on friendly atmosphere of the two countries. “During past days, some section of Pakistani media has spread contents regarding detention of an Indian Agent and the matter related to it, which could have negative implications on the fraternal and friendly atmosphere of Iran and Pakistan,” the embassy spokesperson said in a statement.
Naturally, the spokesperson added, those elements who are not happy over the promotion of ties between two Islamic countries of Iran and Pakistan would try in various ways including by spreading undignified contents and sometimes offensive to fade out the significant achievements during the visit of President Dr Rouhani to Pakistan and to undermine the flourishing ties of Iran and Pakistan.
“Islamic Republic of Iran during seven decades since Independence of Pakistan has always proved itself as a confident partner and neighbour for that country and the western borders of Pakistan have never been threatened”, he said, adding Iran considers its borders with Pakistan as borders of peace and friendship and as Dr Rouhani said in his press conference “Security of Iran is security of Pakistan and security of Pakistan is security of Iran”.
“Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran believes spreading of such news items is the product of thinking which does not like further expansion of ties between the two countries and against fruitful materialisation of the agreements made during the visit of the President and believes that Muslim and aware people of Pakistan attaches special importance and value to the friendship and brotherly ties with Iran,” the embassy stated. It further stated that spreading of undignified and insulting contents would not have any impact on the positive and cordial views of two countries regarding each other.
