Pakistan's Army Chief General Asim Munir and his Iranian counterpart have vowed to eradicate “terrorism in border areas”, ISPR said in a statement on Sunday.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that Gen Munir has concluded his “successful” two-day visit to Iran.

According to the ISPR, the army chief had detailed meetings with the military leadership of the neighbouring country, including Chief of General Staff of Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri.

Both the military commanders agreed that “terrorism is a common threat to the region in general and both countries in particular”.

“They vowed to eradicate the menace of terrorism in the border areas through intelligence sharing and effective actions against the terrorists' networks, and explore avenues for enhancing cooperation in the security domain,” the ISPR added.

Earlier, the COAS was presented with a guard of honour by a smartly turned-out contingent of the Iranian armed forces at the military headquarters on his arrival.

The military’s media wing also said that Gen Munir called on Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahain.

The Iranian leaders and the army chief discussed the significance of Pakistan-Iran bilateral relations for regional peace and stability during the meeting.
