The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has called on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to investigate the terrorist attacks and perpetrators on Afghanistan’s soil and the claims of Pakistani government.
Recently, Pakistan’s army claimed that a tribal elder in #Nangarhar province, identified as Fraidoon Khan Mohmand, was involved in the 2017 attack on Agriculture College in Pakistan’s Peshawar.
In the meantime, MoFA in a press release has rejected Pakistan’s claims, saying in a statement that Pakistan’s claim of Afghanistan soil used for terrorist activities against its country is “baseless”.
“As a victim of terrorism, the Government of Afghanistan is committed to the fight against terrorism and will never allow its territory to be used to carry out destructive activities against other countries,” the statement said. “The Afghan government will continue to coordinate global efforts to jointly fight terrorism and to fund, equip and shelter terrorist groups in the region.”
MoFA also stressed that as the Afghan government prepares to host Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan this week, the Pakistani government was expected to raise issues of interest and debate through existing mechanisms for bilateral co-operation between the two countries.
