Tehran (ISNA) – Pointing to the misuse of the northern part of Iraq by terrorist groups to create insecurity in the border areas of Iran, the Commander of IRGC Ground Force stressed that the continuation of this condition is intolerable for Iran and it will give necessary response to the terrorists.

Following some new movements of armed terrorist groups in the northwestern border areas of Iran, the Commander of IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour paid a visit to the border units and checkpoints of the region.

"Despite repeated emphases and informing the officials of the northern Iraqi region about the movements of terrorist and armed groups in their region to infiltrate and carry out acts of sabotage against Iran, they did not deal with this issue," he said.

"For years, terrorist and counter-revolutionary groups affiliated with the global arrogance and foreign intelligence services have been using the geography of northern Iraq to disrupt security and tranquility in the border areas of the Islamic Republic of Iran and harass the people living in these areas. Iraq and the officials of the northern region of this country have been given the necessary warnings," general Pakpour added.

"The Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Region should not allow terrorists to roam and set up headquarters in this land to threaten and create insecurity against Iran. We consider any negligence in this regard to be contrary to good neighborliness and good relations between the two countries," he stressed.
