The Tajik Border Guard Service has responded to the statement of Russian Interior Minister Igor Zubov.

Earlier, Interior Minister of Russia said: "The Islamic State militants are being delivered by helicopters from the Pakistani territory to the Tajik-Afghan border".

"When the Islamic State militants appear in the frontier zone, we will know about that. There is no "Islamic state" terrorist organization on the Tajik-Afghan border. Moreover, the number of soldiers at the border are enough. No need to take extra force. There is also the units of the Ministry of Defense of Tajikistan", - said Mukhammad Ulushhodzhayev, a spokesman for the Border Service of the National Security Committee of Tajikistan.
