Kabul: Pakistan notified Kabul about the possibility of military operations on Afghan soil, if terrorists according to them, involved in cross-border attacks are not eliminated, a senior Pakistani official told Anadolu news agency.
A high-level Pakistani delegation led by Defense Minister Khawaja Asif delivered the message to Afghanistan’s acting Deputy Prime Minister Mullah Baradar during his day-long visit to Kabul on Wednesday.
“Our delegation delivered a very loud and clear message to Afghan Taliban leadership to stop Afghanistan-based militants of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) from launching any spring offensive inside Pakistan and eliminate them from Afghan soil,” he added.
Kabul officials also emphasized in this meeting that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan has no presence in Afghanistan and its leadership moved to Pakistan after the change of government in Afghanistan.
During the meeting Afghan acting defence minister took the matter of the drone attack carried out by the US last year in Kabul, adding that American drones enter Afghanistan from Pakistan’s airspace.
Previously “Bilawal Bhutto Zardari”, Pakistan’s foreign minister, also said that this country may take direct action against terrorist groups on Afghan soil.
