ISLAMABAD: 

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.

    @Aseem:
    Kabul must first control the 75% of its own territory, then it has to flush out the anti-state feelings among its own population, third it has to explain the recent killing of an American General shot point blank inside an Afghan Military Training Centre!!!!!!

    Thx for the laugh, mate, seriously,

    Any word about those famous peace deals signed with Pakistan’s Good Taliban assets in their Pakistani FATA safe havens, specifying that the government will tolerate (support!) them as long as they only launch terrorist strikes in neighboring countries!!!

    @Asad Khan:
    Has Pakistan explained killing of Osama Bin Laden on its soil? When Pakistan flushes out anti state “population” from FATA why its expected from Afghanistan to flush out only the anti state “feelings” from her population? Does Pakistan has control over her entire territory? Its easier to throw questions at others than answer oneself..
    Looks like Pakistan is still waiting for the Taliban to return to power in Afghanistan. Its high time Pakistan treats Afghanistan as an independent nation and not as her backyard.

    @ Asad Khan

    Pakistan should also try to control its largest province Balochistan and KPK, where terrorists run amok.

    The feeling among Afghans is mutual when it comes to grumblings regarding Afghanistan from Pakistan.

    We just take it in stride. In Pashto we have a saying: Da spi pa khula daryab na mordarizhi. If you are a Pashtun then you will understand this proverb or zarb ul masal. But then again most Pakistani Pashtuns cannot read or write Pashto because Pashtuns were not allowed to learn their own language in school until recently.

    The proof is in the over abundant supply of arms and ammunition at the disposal of these terrorists. They don’t just drop from the sky. Ammonium nitrate and components of mines miraculously appear in Afghanistan like heavenly manna.

    It is an affront to the Afghan people to ask them for evidence of Pakistani interference, when all trails lead to Pakistan. It is a foregone conclusion but plausible deniability is employed by the likes of Headcrown Aziz.
