Shah Mahmood Qureshi hoped that Iran would take visible action against these anti-Pakistan elements operating from its soil and conspiring to undermine the bilateral relations.


The Foreign Minister said he had a detailed telephonic conversation with his Iranian counterpart and conveyed the sentiments of Pakistani nation, who in return, condemned the incident and assured to extend all out support to Pakistan in punishing the perpetrators.
