In his exclusive word with ARY News, Haroon ur Rasheed said that Pakistan should keep demanding Afghanistan for the arrest of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) supremo, Mullah Fazlullah, who is believed to be hiding somewhere in Kunar province of Afghanistan.
He added that Afghanistan will eventually have to admit Pakistan’s demand of arresting Fazlullah, for it has no other option.
