National Security Adviser (NSA) Dr Moeed Yusuf has alleged that Afghanistan was being embarrassed by idiotic statements from its senior officials.

The NSA’s statement was apparently related to the incident involving Afghanistan ambassador’s daughter.

According to the government’s investigation, “it was not a kidnapping” to begin with and is part of a series of attempts to “defame and destabilise” Pakistan. The federal capital police, which was investigating the incident, had also asked the victim side to share the facts related to the incident.

In a series of tweets, the NSA alleged that it was unfortunate for Afghans that their senior officials were trying to vitiate bilateral relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan through vitriolic statements to avert attention from their own failures.

“Afghanistan is being embarrassed daily due to these idiotic statements. Afghans should rest assured that everyone can see through the nefarious agenda of these spoilers. We will not let a handful of venomous minds affect Pakistan’s support to ALL Afghans for peace and stability,” it read.

Moeed said: “Vitriolic & delusional statements from some spoilers in Kabul who, unfortunately for our Afghan brothers and sisters, are imposed on them as their senior officials & are constantly attempting to vitiate bilateral relations on purpose to deflect attention from their own failures.”

The NSA was of the view that Pakistan remained committed to facilitating an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan. In this spirit, he added PM Imran Khan agreed to meet President Ashraf Ghani recently to continue our engagement.

Last week, PM Imran said that blaming Pakistan for the ongoing unrest in Afghanistan was “extremely unfair”. He was responding to the speech of Ghani at a conference in Tashkent.
