AT-KABUL: Former President Hamid Karzai has alleged Pakistani government of intending to raise the Durand Line issue by creating tensions at the Torkham crossing.
“Pakistan’s these efforts are baseless, which would never give fruit,” Karzai told the BBC in an interview, advising Islamabad to deal with Kabul as a good neighbor, instead of interference.
He asked Pakistani officials to be wise and logic, keeping good relationship with its neighboring Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, he slammed the horrific shooting in Orlando, Florida in strongest and possible terms.
The shooting left dozens of people killed and wounded. He said the shooter didn’t represent Islam and emphasized that the Afghans were with the people of America in this horrific act.
“The man who did this, was born in USA, raised there and has nothing to do with Afghanistan,” Karzai said, adding that the incident could be the outcome of personal ideology.
Karzai said that the shooter had completed education there in USA, and was working in a security agency there. That’s why he had no connection to Afghanistan, but only his father was an Afghan.
“I don’t think he ever visited Afghanistan either, he was an American man,” he added that the man committed a crime against human being.
“From the Afghan perspective, we suffer from causalities every day, and that’s why we realize this pain more than others,” Karzai said, adding that it was a humanitarian catastrophe and unforgivable act.
