RAW must not be allowed to use Afghan soil against Pakistan: FO


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has asked Kabul not to allow India’s top intelligence agency to operate from Afghan territory against Pakistan’s interest, foreign office said on Thursday.

On their recent  visit to Afghanistan, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff asked Afghan authorities to stop the Research Analysis Wing (RAW) from creating unrest in Pakistan, said Foreign Office Spokesperson Qazi Khalil.

“Pakistan told Kabul that RAW must not be allowed to use the Afghan soil against us,” Qazi Khalil was responding a question at a weekly Press Briefing at Foreign Office today.

To another question about alleged involvement of RAW in Pakistan’s unrest, Foreign Office Spokesperson said there have been reports of Indian intelligence agencies’ involvement in Pakistan’s affairs in the past as well.

Regarding the Safora massacre which killed 45 members of Ismailia community, Khalil said investigations are still going on and it is difficult to determine who is behind this bone chilling incident.
