Jaish al Adl is a Sunni militant group in Pakistan which carries out attacks against Iranian security forces with the aim of highlighting what they say is discrimination against minority Sunni Muslims in Iran, where the majority are Shi'ites. In a statement, Pakistan's interior ministry said Zarif had been assured border security would be strengthened through "better coordination, greater intelligence sharing and frequent interactions" between officials of the two countries.

Iran's border area which it shares with Pakistan has been plagued by unrest from both drug smuggling gangs as well as separatist militants.

Shortly after the attack, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani wrote to Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, calling for the perpetrators to be arrested and handed over to Tehran.

The Pakistani authorities have not commented regarding the remarks by the Iranian officials so far. "If there are continued attacks, the terrorists' safe havens will be targeted and crushed, wherever they are", Bagheri was quoted as saying by IRNA news agency.

Major General Baqeri's statement has come barely a month after the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi called Pakistan a safe haven for terrorist cells.

Relations between Tehran and Islamabad have seen numerous flare-ups in recent years over alleged militant activity in Pakistan.

Killings of eight Iranian border guards in April 2015 and 14 in October 2013, have previously been claimed by the group.

A former Pakistani military chief, retired General Raheel Sharif, is already in Riyadh, where he is preparing to take charge as the first commander-in-chief of the alliance.

On the recent Naxal attacks, Ahir said, a meeting of 10 chief ministers of Naxal-affected states was held at New Delhi yesterday and strategies to tackle the problem were discussed.
