Landi Kotal [Pakistan]: Pakistan Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has warned that the Afghan leadership’s anti-Pakistan diatribe on ‘enemy’s soil’ could jeopardise the friendly relationship between the two neighbouring countries.

He made the remarks on Wednesday during his first visit to the Pak-Afghan border at Torkham, reports the Dawn.

“The Afghan leadership should refrain from levelling baseless allegations of abetting terrorism and harbouring militant organisations while speaking at our enemy’s soil,” he said, in an apparent reference to Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani’s recent remarks against Pakistan during the Heart of Asia Conference in India.

Nisar said that Pakistan had provided shelter and every possible help to millions of Afghans for more than 30 years and would continue to support the Afghan government for rebuilding the war-ravaged country.

The Minister added that the federal government had also allocated Rs70 billion to raise a new border force for effectively monitoring the 2,000km border with Afghanistan, implementing the border management policy and preventing suspected elements from entering Pakistan from Afghanistan.(ANI)
