The Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson stated on Friday that the weapons left in Afghanistan before the US pullout deserved worldwide attention as they had “fallen into the hands of Afghan terrorists,” in reference to recent confrontations along the Pak-Afghan border.

Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, a spokesman, said that Pakistan’s security services were committed to driving out terrorism from the nation at a weekly press conference. She continued by saying that Pakistan has expressed its worries over the latest event near the border to the Afghan interim administration.

Mumtaz added that the Afghan government has been informed about the threat of terrorist strikes coming from Afghanistan. We hold no one accountable, but given that the weapons still in Afghanistan are now in the possession of terrorist organisations, they need international attention.

According to FO, Jalil Abbas Jilani, the interim foreign minister, will preside over the Commonwealth Youth Ministerial Conference in London from September 12 to 15 to interact with leaders from other nations.

Additionally, she discussed the subject of ongoing human rights abuses in India’s illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). International human rights organisations have sent letters to G20 nations alerting them to the violations of free speech and atrocities taking place in the illegitimately occupied Kashmir, she added.

The spokesperson said that instead of making useless remarks against Pakistan, the Indian government should concentrate on the issues facing its own citizens.
