Border Incident Killing Afghan Migrants Took Place Inside Afghanistan: Iran

Spokesperson for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asserted that an incident involving the deaths of Afghan migrants trying to cross into Iran illegally has taken place on the Afghan soil.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi has issued a statement in reaction to reports released by the Afghan media about a deadly incident involving a number of Afghan citizens who were trying to make illegal entry into the Islamic Republic of Iran by crossing a border river.

Mousavi said, “This incident has occurred on the Afghan soil, and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Border Police has denied that any such incident has taken place on the soil of our country.”

His comments came after local Afghan news media claimed that about 50 Afghan migrants crossing into Iran illegally have been beaten and thrown into a river.
