ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has formally shared with Afghanistan the location of terrorist camps along the border and requested the Kabul government to deploy forces for an effective control, the Foreign Office said in a statement issued on Wednesday. According to the Foreign Office, Pakistan also regretted twisting of facts by the Afghan government regarding the recent incidents of firing along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. “As a matter of policy, Pakistan does not fire across Pak-Afghan border,” it said, adding that cross-border attacks by terrorists on army and FC posts are responded to in self-defence only.
The Foreign Office said Pakistan hopes that Afghanistan will do the needful in line with the mutual understanding on these issues.
