India using Afghan soil for terrorist activities in Pakistan, says foreign secy
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua on Tuesday said the United States had been apprised of the fact that Indian intelligence agency RAW was using Afghan soil for terrorist activities in Pakistan.
“Indian hegemony in the region is unacceptable,” she stated while briefing a meeting of Senate’s Committee on Foreign Affairs in Islamabad.
She said terrorist safe havens were in Afghanistan where over forty five percent area of the country was without any governance.
The foreign secretary said there were no safe havens of terrorist groups in Pakistan and the country had cleansed its soil of terrorists.
“Pakistan is taking effective measures for border management with Afghanistan,” she said.
She said the US was ready to mediate between Pakistan and India over Kashmir issue.
Referring to Army Chief’s recent visit to Afghanistan, Tehmina Janjua said it was a significant visit and the meetings with Afghan civilian leadership remained positive.
About anti-Pakistan posters in London, she briefed the senate committee that the posters had been removed after Pakistan’s protest.
