Khurram Ali | 9 years ago | Reply | Recommend Pakistan Govt must respond quickly on this cross border infentration. It is the responsibility of US Forces, NATO and Afgan Army to stop militants to cross border. Western media always bark that terrorists attack from Pakistan in Afghanistan. Where is Pakistani Media now? Do they have no responsibilty to raise voice of this infentration in Pakistan. Stop talibans and militants of your side to enter our side or let us chase our enemies in Afghanistan because you have been failed in fulfilling your responsibility to secure border.
