DOHA: Afghan soil will not be used to launch attacks against any country after foreign troops withdraw, the war-torn nation’s foreign minister told Al Jazeera in an interview, excerpts of which were received by AFP on Friday. 

“Afghan soil will not be used against any country in the region,” Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul said, when asked if the United States would be allowed to continue drone attacks on Pakistan after all foreign combat troops withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
