Jaish ul-Adl which has a number of Iranian border guards under arrest has announced that as long as Iran holds negotiations with it in order to reach a deal on mutual prisoners no threat will be posed at the Iranian soldiers.
The group had previously stated that it would kill a second of the soldiers if its demands were not granted by April 2.
The group kidnapped five Iranian soldiers at border with Pakistan around two months ago.
A few days ago it claimed that it had killed one of the hostages named Jamshid Danaee Far, although the truth of the matter is questionable.
Iran’s Interior Ministry has said that no real document is available yet to prove that Danaee Far is dead.
Jaish ul-Adl has maintained that if Iran does not come to terms with them they will kill more of the hostages.
