ISLAMABAD: The prime minister’s senior aide, Sartaj Aziz, on Saturday said Pakistan and Afghanistan have agreed to carry out coordinated actions against terrorists in their respective areas.
Addressing the media in Islamabad, the foreign affairs and national security adviser to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said, “Pakistan and Afghanistan have also agreed not to let anyone use their soil against each other.”
“Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has pledged that he would not let his country’s border be used for terrorism,” Aziz added.
Further, he said officials from the two countries will meet within two weeks to discuss measures for effective border control.
Last night, in an interview to AFP, Aziz termed the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s savage attack on an army-run school in Peshawar a ‘game changer’ and said, “The distinction between some groups you want to target and some groups you don’t want to target has virtually disappeared.”
Responding to a question regarding relations with India, Aziz said, “Serious efforts are required to resume the stalled Pakistan-India dialogue.”
