Greater Middle East (bbabo.net), - The foreign ministers of Pakistan and Iran reached an agreement on the return of the ambassadors of the two countries to their duties by January 26.

Pakistan on January 18 reported a series of strikes on “terrorist hideouts” in the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan. This was Islamabad's response to a missile attack by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on targets of the Jaish al-Adl terrorist group in Pakistani Balochistan. Following this, the ambassadors of the two countries were recalled to their capitals for consultations. After a short time, a signal was received about mutual readiness to “reduce tensions between countries.”
