ISLAMABAD: Afghanistan is ready to provide “evidence to Pakistan about its flagrant interference” in the country’s affairs if it intends to sincerely fight against terrorism, Afghan officials said on Wednesday.

Kabul is expected to approach the United Nations to seek international support in efforts to halt cross-border attacks, Afghan media has reported.

The recommendations will be made on the sidelines of the UN’s General Assembly meeting scheduled to take place in three weeks, Tolo TV reported on Wednesday.

Quoting the ministry of foreign affairs, the report said the Afghan government will ask UN to put pressure on Pakistan to stop all “rocket and artillery fire into Afghanistan” particularly Kunar province.

The Afghan spy agency alleged that “Pakistan has increased interference in Afghanistan’s internal affairs to create uncertainty about the political future of the country.”

“We have evidence about the involvement of Pakistani security agencies,” spokesman for Afghanistan’s intelligence agency, NDS, Haseeb Siddiqi told a news conference in Kabul.

Siddiqi claimed that Pakistan has now changed its policy in Afghanistan and wants to spread “mistrust among Afghans about their future.”

“Afghanistan has evidence and documents that Pakistani institutions have now taken the lead of fighting in our country,” the NDS spokesman said.

    Afghanistan should not waste its time and energy in providing proofs which are going to be out rightly rejected by Pakistan as India has tons of experience in facing the same dilemma with this country. India has now adopted the policy of massive response which is evident from the recent firing on border which lasted for many days and brought Pakistan to knees.

    I had read a report a few months back that India, afghanistan and Iran had plotted to defame Pakistan and try isolate it through false allegations of cross border terrorism. Now I believe the report had some substance to it. This, the Iranian allegations of soldier kidnapping, and the as-usual Indian moanings are all pointing to the authenticity of the report. However, what Afghan Government fails to inform is that it has established 18 indian consulates in Afghanistan which are continuously engaged in terrorist activities in Pakistan including, but-not-limited-to, promoting sectarian violence between Shias and Sunnis, bomb blasts, provision of weapons and support to terrorists (Pakistani Taliban), supporting terrorist and separatist movements; just to name a few… It is worth mentioning that India is conducting many projects in Iran (& Afghanistan also). Iran also holds interest in destabilizing western Pakistan for reasons that i don’t wish to go into detail here.

    It must stand clear to all our neighbours.. we reserve the right to respond in kind… as we are doing in sialkot by destroying the Indian guns that dare to fire at us. be it even a single shot.

    @Mansoor:
    18 consulates? Lol india has 4 consulates in Afghanistan why don’t you google before going on with your conspiracy theories being taught there? And btw indian paper has once asked your FO spokesperson regarding this false statement being used to fan hate across your country. Abdul basit himself has said that 18 consulates are not factually correct.

    “I have read a report a few months back that India ,Afghanistan and Iran had plotted to defame Pakistan” you forgot china. Even they have raised objection with you about your networks supporting Uighur extremist attack in their country. Btw nice approach, ostrich head buried in head who refuse to see the truth and deflect blame with theories. Why don’t you for a change open your eyes and recognise the problem and solve it with your surrounding neighbour regarding attacks than follow denial approach? Do you realise such mistakes have cost you more than the neighbours? World’s most wanted person was found there, while you followed same approach “denial” he’s not here”.

    Even Holbrooke agreed that India is involved with the Afghan government in terrorism against Pakistan, using its consulates for proxy war. India can’t deny that its only role in Afghanistan is anti-Pakistan and anti-Pukhtoon. India fears Pakistan and Afghan unity, and like many other countries in the region, is trying to stop it from materializing.

    As time goes on, the pain and suffering faced by Afghans and Pakistanis by outside powers like India, Russia, NATO, and others will unite us together. The future is moving fast, and India has lost its strategic depth in Afghanistan.

    I always get a kick out of reading jingoistic, delusional and ignorant comments from the madrasah educated people of the land of the pure.

    The forces of the 3D school of thought (denial, delusion and deflection) is strong in Pakistan resulting in the precarious situation it finds itself in today.

    Introspection and reflection are alien concepts in Pakistan where conventional wisdom is shunned and conspiracy theorists’ thrive by spreading false propaganda against its neighbors to perpetuate a stale narrative that only finds currency among the hare brained.

    Then its even easier for the Aghans to cross back and receive this aid from foreign agencies in their country.

    Why are they still in Pakistan?

    Afghans have been manipulated by Indian intelligence.

    @Rudra:

    You are absolutely right – India has only four consulates which have development volunteers who help in Afghanistan’s rural development projects, besides the usual consular staff to provide consular services.

    This guy @ Mansoor probably cannot count. Mathematic has never been a strong point amongst Pakistanis, anyway. But you got to give them credit: they can recite the Khoran back and front. After all, these guys get their education, mostly, in madrassahs.

    @ Bhatiyar Ghazi Khan

    I don’t think Holbrooke, a seasoned diplomat, would ever make such a ridiculous statement. India does not engage in any anti-Pakistani activities on Afghan soil. But can one say the same of Pakistan which has enemies all around it, thanks to its constant meddling and creating mischief in other’s real estate?

    Pakistanis may not like to hear this but Pakistan has become an international pariah; had it not been for generous U.S. aid, the country would have fragmented long ago into more pieces which would be fighting each other.
