Iran’s top general has warned Pakistan against the real Saudi intentions behind the 20 billion dollars investment. Saudi Arabia is disturbing the peace by creating internal conflicts in the South Asian region, says the general.
The commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) once again pledged to say, ” Tehran will avenge the blood of those who lost their lives in last week’s bloody attack carried out by Pakistan-based terrorists in southeastern Iran”.
The senior general General Qassem Soleimani expressed concern saying, ” It worries Iran that the Pakistani nation and government allow Saudi money to end up in the hands of these Takfiri terrorists. Saudi-sponsored terrorists on Pakistani soil are causing trouble for all of the country’s neighbors, and Pakistan must fully realize this matter.”
Soleimani said that the Asian country must not turn into a place for activities that disturb regional states such as Iran, India, and Afghanistan.”We tell the people of Pakistan that they should not permit Saudi Arabia to destroy their country with its money,” added Major General.
In Sistan and Baluchestan Province bordering Pakistan, a bomber identified by the IRGC as Pakistani national Hafiz Mohammad Ali threw his explosives-laden vehicle into a bus carrying off-duty members of the elite Iranian force, killing 27 of them. The Pakistan-based Jaish ul-Adl Takfiri terrorist group associated with the al-Qaeda and the Al Saud regime claimed responsibility for the deadly terror attack.
In the aftermath of attacks, the chief IRGC commander has warned Saudi Arabia and the UAE that they could face retaliatory measures for supporting terrorists on behalf of the US and Israel. It also requested Pakistan to change its policy towards Jaish ul-Adl.
“Iran is a safe neighbour for Pakistan and we will not threaten this country, but we will exact revenge against the Takfiri mercenaries, who have the blood of our youths on their hands” no matter where in the world they are,” Soleimani added.
During the crown prince Salman’s visit, Riyadh and Pakistan have signed several agreements in diverse sectors worth as much as $20bn amid Pakistani central bank’s critical foreign reserves. The Saudi royal’s visit also clashed with a fresh wave of tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir.
