Adviser to the PM on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Thursday said if the Afghan authorities have evidence to substantiate their allegations implicating Pakistan in insurgent attacks, acts of terrorism, and cross-border shelling, it should be shared with Pakistan.
In a meeting with the Afghan Ambassador Janan Mosazai he said Pakistan sincerely wants to see a peaceful, stable and united Afghanistan. Aziz further underscored that Pakistan remains committed to building a friendly and good-neighbourly relationship with Afghanistan, on the basis of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity.
“In this regard, we will continue our efforts to meaningfully address mutual concerns and strengthen trust and understanding.”
For this purpose, both sides must utilize the bilateral mechanisms to reinforce Pakistan-Afghanistan security cooperation and improve border controls and management.
