Pakistan has expressed the confidence that Iran will take visible action against the elements operating from its soil for terrorist acts in Balochistan.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad today, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan has shared actionable intelligence with the Iranian authorities after an investigation about the involvement of these elements in the recent terrorist act on the coastal highway.
