Hosseini made the remarks on July 10 while reacting to some Pakistani media projections intending to create misunderstanding between Iran and Pakistan by reporting the misleading and suspicious confessions of a Pakistani criminal who is being imprisoned in Karachi due to serious crimes. He had claimed on alleged exchanging intelligence with Iranian security forces.

Commenting on the media propaganda, the ambassador said, "The friendly, stable, and fraternal relations between the two countries show that the Islamic Republic of Iran considers the security of Pakistan as its security and strongly condemns any attempt to destabilize the neighboring country".

He noted that the background of Iran's regional activities indicates that Iran has defined and regulated its relations with Pakistan in accordance with mutual respect and interests, and has always played a positive and effective role in creating, protecting, and ensuring the regional security, which has been extended to fight against terrorist elements making the borders insecure.
