Army chief General Syed Asim Munir and his Iranian counterpart vowed on Sunday to eradicate “terrorism in border areas”, the military’s media wing said in a statement on Sunday.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Gen Munir had detailed meetings with the military leadership of the neighbouring country including Chief of General Staff of Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri during his “successful” two-day visit to Tehran.

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.
