Face-off deepens as Islamabad alleges terrorists enter Pakistan via Afghanistan
AT-KABUL: Afghan defense ministry on Monday rejected allegations by Pakistani military that terrorists enter their soil from Afghanistan to carry out attacks.
Mohammad Radmanesh, spokesman of the ministry said that the attacks were carried out in Pakistan by terrorists born and raised inside the country.
Pakistani military had claimed in a statement that the attacks carried out in Bajaur and Balochistan areas, were planned and organized in Afghan soil.
Radmanesh added that terrorists had no place in Afghanistan, arguing that the attacks were games created by Pakistani intelligence service.
“This is clear that the Peshawar council, Quetta council and Miranshah council are based in Pakistan. Pakistan tries to blame Afghanistan for the crimes are done by itself,” said Radmanesh.
In the recent terrorist attacks in Pakistan, four border guards and an air force officers were injured. Pakistani army has killed six assailants.
Pakistan has repeatedly accused Afghanistan of harboring terrorists that carry out attacks inside Pakistani soil.
Sebghatollah Ahmad, spokesman of the foreign ministry said that Afghanistan wants peace and stability in the entire region and does not interfere in the affairs of other countries.
Not interfering in other countries’ affairs is a principle of our foreign policy, Ahmad said Monday, adding that stability in Pakistan means stability in Afghanistan. “We think of the regional consensus and regional security.”
