No compromise on national sovereignty: MoFA
AT News Report
KABUL: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Sunday said that Afghanistan would never compromise on its national sovereignty while allowing other countries to target its civilians or their properties within its boundaries.
Spokesman for MoFA, Janan Mosazai, in the weekly press briefing said that Afghanistan was an independent country and no one has the right to challenge its dominion or national integrity. Kabul would not allow other nation including Pakistan at any cost to infringe on its freedom and kill innocent Afghan civilians.
He reiterated that Afghanistan being a sincere neighbor was always willing and trying wholeheartedly to have cordial relations with neighboring countries.
He asked Pakistan to stop cross-border missile attacks at once, because these attacks were violation of the international laws and was putting relations of the both neighbors at stake.
He said after the failure of diplomatic efforts the government was planning to come with a national decision as well as discuss the cross-border rocket attacks by Pakistani security forces in the coming meeting of National Security Council.
However, ironically Janan Mosazai said in the conference that relations with Islamabad were better as compared to past in every sphere including political, social, culture and economics.
