Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Iran on Sunday to discuss security and regional issues, state television reported, a day after Islamabad demanded Tehran take action against militants responsible for killings in the Pakistani province of Baluchistan.

A new major group representing different rebels operating in Baluchistan has claimed responsibility for Thursday’s attack, in which 14 people were killed after being kidnapped from buses in the region bordering Iran.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on Saturday the training and logistics camps of the new coalition that carried out the attack were within Iran.

Qureshi called on Tehran to take action against militants.

Iranian television said Khan began his two-day visit to Iran, the first since he took office in August.

Pakistan’s premier is scheduled to meet Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, President Hassan Rowhani and other officials in Tehran on Monday.

“The meetings will discuss the development of bilateral relations, border security, counter-terrorism and a number of regional issues,” Iranian television said.

Relations between Iran and Pakistan have been strained over the past few months, and the two countries have accused each other of not doing enough to eliminate militants believed to be from border areas
