Iran’s Top General to Visit Pakistan

Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri is to visit Pakistan at the head of a high-ranking military delegation.

The visit will be made upon invitation by Chief of Army Staff of the Pakistan Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Fars News Agency reported on Saturday.

During the visit, Baqeri and his Pakistani counterpart will discuss latest developments in the region and explore ways of strengthening bilateral defence ties, border cooperation and anti-terror coordination.

The two generals will also follow up on agreements made during the visit of Bajwa to Iran last year.

The visit comes against a backdrop of improved border cooperation among the two countries, which has led to reduced attacks against Iranian troops in southeastern Sistan and Baluchestan Province by terrorists residing in Pakistan.

The border was a source of considerable tensions between Tehran and Islamabad, with Iran complaining Islamabad is lax in controlling the border.
