Defence Minister Khawaja Asif has said that Afghanistan is not fulfilling the right to be a neighboring and brotherly country and is also not abiding by the Doha Agreement.

In a tweet, Khawaja Asif stated that five to six million Afghans have access to shelter in Pakistan with all rights.

“On the contrary, terrorists who shed the blood of Pakistanis have safe havens on Afghan soil, this situation cannot continue any longer,” he said.

“Pakistan will use all its resources to protect its soil and its citizens,” he added.

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir, during a visit to Quetta Garrison on July 14, had said that there was concern over the involvement of Afghan nationals in terrorist attacks inside Pakistan.

The Army Chief said that the armed forces have serious concerns about TTP safe havens and independent terrorist activities in Afghanistan, it is expected that the interim Afghan government will not allow its soil to be used for terrorism against any country.

The statement came in the wake of two terror attacks against Pakistani security forces in Balochistan on Wednesday in which 12 soldiers were martyred in attacks in Zhob and Sui.
