KABUL: The Islamic Emirate seeks diplomatic efforts to resolve the recent tensions risen between Islamic Emirate forces and Pakistan military alongside the Duran line.
The tensions come as the Islamic Emirate and Pakistani border forces were reportedly on high alert Friday after a Pakistani chopper was shot at along the Durand Line in Nimroz province. The Pakistani side announced preparation for a military response.
Reportedly a Pakistani army general was injured in the chopper incident in Zakir village of Chahar Burjak district.
Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said Afghanistan never seeks tension with any country including neighbors.
“The Islamic Emirate wants good relations with all countries including neighbors and does not want to be involved in any kind of tension. Officials of the Islamic Emirate are attempting to solve this and all issues by negotiations and understanding,” said Bilal Karimi.
The Pakistani government has yet to officially comment on the problem.
“A Pakistani army helicopter was shot, no one was killed, the Pakistani side said this. They have not said that Taliban members fired, but the incident happened. The Pakistanis asked for an explanation of who did it,” said Taher Kahn, a Pakistani journalist.
Analyst also urged diplomatic ways to overcome the tensions.
