ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) has strongly condemned the baseless allegations of Afghan National Security Advisor (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib for Pakistan’s involvement in the internal affairs of Afghanistan, ARY News reported on Friday.
The FO spokesperson said in a statement, “We strongly condemn the baseless insinuations by the Afghan National Security Advisor (NSA), Hamdullah Mohib, alleging Pakistan’s involvement in the internal affairs of Afghanistan.”
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said, “Pakistan’s role in the Afghan Peace Process has been widely acknowledged by the international community.”
“The repeated impertinent and unwarranted remarks by the Afghan NSA are deeply concerning as they are tantamount to a calculated attempt by his office to disregard and nullify the progress in the peace process so far.”
He added, “We would also like to remind the Afghan NSA, of mutual understanding reached in Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS), obligating both sides to avoid public blame-game and use official channels to discuss complete gamut of bilateral relations. Statements that erode mutual trust should be avoided.”
