On the other hand, Pakistan accused Afghan authorities of giving sanctuaries to the outlawed TTP and other militant groups to attack Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Afghan officials firmly refused to utilize Afghanistan’s soil by anyone against Pakistan, adding that Pakistan should not blame others for its own mistakes.
