ISLAMABAD: Afghanistan’s Ambassador to Pakistan Janan Mosazai was called in by Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Wednesday to convey concerns over recent spate of Afghan government’s allegations and media campaign to malign Pakistan.

“The Foreign Secretary stressed that such allegations undercut mutual confidence and affect the environment of bilateral relations that both countries had been working hard to improve,” said a statement issued by the foreign office.

 

“Pakistan has been acting with maximum restraint and avoiding any blame-game,” it added.

 

A strong protest was also lodged on cross-border violations from the Afghan side on August 16 and 17, which resulted in martyrdom of three FC personnel and injuries to two others.

 

The Foreign Secretary further conveyed to the Ambassador that as per the guidance of the leadership, Pakistan would continue its policy of restraint and responsibility and constructive engagement with Afghanistan.

 

“We expect that the Afghan government would also reciprocate by taking effective measures to obviate recurrence of such incidents on the border, and work with Pakistan to build mutual trust and good-neighbourly relations” he was quoted as saying.

  1. Throw every Afghan refugee out of Pakistan. In fact I believe this is already happening, consequently so many are now seeking asylum in the west. These uncivil Afghani heroin addicts have always been filthy traitors.
