Qureshi also expressed satisfaction over cooperation with regard to the Pakistan-Iran border.

The foreign minister continued, "The new government in Pakistan has pledged its complete support and commitment to the advancement of CPEC".

The Pakistani premier, at that time, had said the two countries enjoy historical and religious ties and that the people of both nations needed to extend cooperation in different fields.

Iranian media have blamed the abduction on al-Qaida-linked Jaish al-Adl.

Iranian leaders believe that the kidnappers transferred the guards to Pakistan after taking them hostage.
