Iranian border guards have repeatedly come under attacks by terror outfits active on the Pakistani soil.

According to the source, the abductors are members of an identified terrorist group.

Fourteen Iranian security personnel, including Revolutionary Guards intelligence officers, were abducted on the volatile southeastern border with Pakistan on Tuesday, state media reported.

An al-Qaeda-affiliated group known as Jaish al-Adl claimed responsibility for the attack.

Lulakdan is in Sistan-Balochistan, a mainly Sunni province that has always been plagued by unrest from both separatist militants and drug smuggling gangs.

"No effort will be spared to assist our Iranian brothers in finding the Iranian guards", the FO said in a statement issued late in the evening after Tehran protested over the kidnapping of its guards from a region bordering Pakistan and sought cooperation for their recovery.

In September, the Revolutionary Guards killed four Sunni terrorists at a border crossing with Pakistan, including the second-in-command of Jaish al-Adl.

In a previous abduction, the armed group killed an Iranian officer and released four soldiers after holding them for almost two months.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday both militaries were working to ascertain the whereabouts of the Iranians.

Iran's Fars News agency also quoted Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari on Wednesday as saying that infiltrators had helped with the abduction of at least 10 staff to Pakistan on Tuesday.

The reports did not name a specific group as a suspect in the abduction.

The two neighbours have lately cooperated extensively for improving border security by undertaking several measures, including the deployment of additional troops. It said the perpetrators were "hired by some evil, reactionary and terrorist-training regional countries", a reference to Iran's regional rival Saudi Arabia and the kingdom's Gulf Arab allies.

Last month militants hit a military parade in Iran's city of Ahvaz, killing 24 people and wounding over 60.
