KABUL (Pajhwok): Iranian army chief says the border between Afghanistan and Iran is well secured and if any minor issues happens, it will be solved by border forces of the two neighbors.

Tasnim News Agency in a report said that Mohammad Baqeri, the army chief of Iran, traveled to Sistan and Baluchestan provinces of that country on Sunday.

The Iranian news agency quoted Baqeri as saying, “Thank God, the shared borders are well secured and if there are any minor issues, they will be resolved by the border guards of the two countries.”

“The shared border between Iran and Pakistan is the border of peace and friendship, there is trade and commerce in this area,” he said.
