Afghanistan must not play someone else’s game, warns Pakistan
PESHAWAR: In a clear reference to India, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar on Wednesday warned Afghanistan that its government must not get trapped in other deceptive plans.
The interior minister, addressing media in Landi Kotal Khyber Agency, reiterated that peace in Pakistan was not possible without peace in Afghanistan and so the Afghan government must not play someone else’s game.
With repeated terror incidents in the country, Nisar said Pakistan’s war against terrorism was not over yet. “Still some terrorists are left, who have fled by crossing the borders,” he said.
He said that Pakistan will control all traffic from Afghanistan through six dedicated routes by 2020. He said that peace of both countries is linked together, and Pakistan wants free movement across the border but infiltration of terrorists needs to be stopped.
Lauding the services of former army chief General (retired) Raheel Sharif, Nisar remembered him as s front man who stood firm for the right causes.
Earlier today, the interior minister visited Headquarters of Frontier Corps (FC) at Bala Hisar and laid a wreath at ‘Yadgar-e-Shuhada’ (martyrs monument) and offered fateha for the eternal peace of the departed souls.
The FC authorities briefed Nisar about the role of FC in the ongoing operation Zarb-e-Azb and its Operational preparedness.
He said that National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) office and a visa centre would be established at the Torkham border.
