In a statement released on Friday, Khatibzadeh reacted to stories published by the Pakistani media about the cause of the clashes with the fuel smugglers at the common border of the two countries, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The spokesman said the issue is being investigated by competent Iranian authorities.
He noted that senior border guards of the two countries are working on the case, considering that Pakistan has transferred the body of an Iranian national to Iran.
Khatibzadeh added that the border guards and the Iranian Foreign Ministry will take the necessary measures based on the results of the reports.
The fatal clashes led to protests in the southeastern city of Saravan in Sistan and Baluchestan Province.
