Airstrikes on Afghanistan Soil, Pakistan Foreign Ministry: Islamabad and Kabul Had Diplomatic Coordination on Recent Border Issues

Kabul – In a news conference, following Pakistan’s airstrikes on Afghanistan, the country’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Asim Iftikhar has said that Islamabad and Kabul have been coordinating and consulting on the two countries’ security measures through diplomatic channels for months.

“Terrorists use Afghanistan’s territory to carry out operations inside Pakistan and they are not being punished,” Mr. Iftikhar has further said. “These measures undermine our efforts to maintain peace and stability along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.”

According to Iftikhar, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has continued to attack Pakistani checkpoints from Afghanistan.

Iftikhar has called on the Taliban to take strict measures against terrorist operations in order to establish peace and stability in the region.

According to the Charter of the United Nations and International Law, Pakistan’s airstrikes are clear violations of Afghanistan’s sovereignty.

Pakistani airstrikes on Kunar and Khost have provoked widespread internal reactions. Afghanistan’s representative to the United Nations also called the attack a clear invasion of Afghanistan’s territory.
