A video posted by Fars showed blood and debris at the site of the attack on a road in a volatile area near the Pakistan border where militants and armed drug smugglers operate.

Earlier this month, Jaish al-Adl was blamed for an attack on a paramilitary base in Nik Shahr that left one Revolutionary Guard dead and five others wounded. It said the troops were returning from the border.

The so-called Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

The group's Quds Force unit said the United States, its allies and Zionism shared responsibility for the attack, without elaborating on the claim.

It came on the same day that a conference convened by the U.S. in Warsaw was to include discussions on what Washington describes as Iran's malign influence across the wider Middle East.

The IRNA news agency reported the toll in the bombing Wednesday in Sistan and Baluchistan province. Zarif added that the "US seems to always make the same wrong choices, but expect different results".
