Pakistan rejects reports of offering Ghazni attackers medical treatment


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has strongly rejected the allegations leveled by the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani that its hospitals offered medical treatment to some Taliban fighters involved in the Ghazni attack.

“Afghanistan has not officially shared any information or evidence with Pakistan in this regard,” the Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal said in a statement on Saturday.

On August 10, the Afghan Taliban stormed the Country’s southeastern Ghazni City, and killed over 40 personnel of the Afghan forces in an intense fighting.

Later while speaking at a gathering, the Afghan president alleged that the attackers had come from Pakistan, and those who had suffered injuries in the fight with the Afghan forces were receiving treatment in hospitals in the neighboring Country.

“In response to a question the Spokesperson remarked that Pakistan strongly rejects reports alleging that some Taliban fighters involved in the Ghazni attack ‘were offered medical treatment in Pakistani hospitals,” Dr Faisal said.

The Spokesman said that in the absence of official communications through regular channels established bilaterally, such reports cannot be given any credence, and can only be viewed as malicious propaganda to vitiate the existing cooperation between the two Countries.
