Pakistan recalls ambassador after Iran airstrike

Pakistan recalls its ambassador from Iran and blocks Tehran’s envoy from returning to Islamabad after an Iranian airstrike killed two children in the west of the country a day earlier, the foreign ministry says.

“Last night’s unprovoked and blatant breach of Pakistan’s sovereignty by Iran is a violation of international law and the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations,” spokeswoman Mumtaz Zahra Baloch says in a statement.
