Pakistan Iran Border Agreement

There are tensions between Tehran and Islamabad over incidents on the Pak-Iran border, and Tehran has long accused Islamabad of failing to act against militant groups that have carried out numerous terrorist attacks in the border province of Sistan-Balochistan. Pakistan`s Foreign Ministry said Iran had the right to establish barriers on its territory. [7] [8] However, the Balochistan Provincial Assembly opposed the construction of the wall. She said the wall would pose problems for balochists whose country is overcoming the border region. The Community would be more divided politically and socially and its commercial and social activities would be seriously hampered. [9] Opposition leader Kachkol Ali said that the governments of both countries had not trusted the Baloch in the case[10] to immediately stop the construction of the wall and called on the international community to help the Baloch people.

In 1871, the British (representing the Khan of Kalat and the subcontinent) and the Persians agreed to define their mutual border; A border commission examined the area the following year, but did not mark the border on the ground. [2] The British penetration of Balochistan under Sir Robert Groves Sandeman continued in the following decades, which led to a more precise border, which was to be agreed and marked 1895-96 with columns on the ground. [2] Some minor harmonization issues arising from this were resolved by another joint treaty in 1905.

Since 1987, Pakistan has consistently blocked any acquisition of nuclear weapons by Iran; However, Pakistan fully supported Iran`s position on the issue of its nuclear program, stating that “Iran has the right to develop its nuclear program as part of non-nuclear coverage.” In 1987, Pakistan and Iran signed a civil cooperation agreement on nuclear energy, with Zia-Ul-Haq personally visiting Iran as part of its “Atoms for Peace” programme.
