ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Asif has said that the United States has failed to establish peace in Afghanistan.
Talking to a private news channel, the minister said that the US is blaming Pakistan after its failure in Afghanistan. He said that Pakistan has asked the US to provide actionable information but no such information is being provided to our Country.
Khawaja Asif demanded the United States to ensure return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan.
The minister said that Pakistan has started fencing for securing its border with Afghanistan because it is imperative for combating terrorism. He said that Afghanistan should focus on the ‘border management’ and fulfill its responsibility in that regard.
Expressing serious concerns over the situation in the neighboring Country, he said that the allied forces equipped with modern weapons and having thousands of soldiers could not establish peace in Afghanistan. He said that according to the information and reports, the groups of Daesh were operating in eight to nine provinces of Afghanistan.
Asif also expressed dismay over deteriorating peace situation in Afghanistan, and said that a huge part of the Country is not under the control of the Afghan government.
The foreign minister said that Pakistan has extended a lot of cooperation to United States on different occasion in the past but our country had to face huge loss rather than benefits.
Khawaja Asif said that some foreign forces do not want to see Pakistan as a powerful state but Pakistan cannot be intimated with threats of any Country. He said that Pakistan Armed forces are fully capable to defend the motherland.
