Islamabad calls for end to blame game

Oct 06, 2011 - 19:47

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Islamabad on Thursday asked Kabul to show greater responsibility and give up the ongoing blame game, said a private Pakistani TV channel, monitored in Kabul.

 "At this defining stage when challenges have multiplied, it is our expectation that those in position of authority in Afghanistaninfo-icon will demonstrate maturity and responsibility," Geo TV quoted a foreign ministry spokeswoman as saying.

While urging an end to point-scoring and playing politics, Tehmina Janjua reiterated Pakistaninfo-icon's offer of full assistance and cooperation in investigating the assassination of former President Prof Burhanuddin Rabbani.

"Pakistan has strongly rejected the allegations of Pakistan's premier intelligence agency's involvement in the assassination of the chairman of the High Peace Councilinfo-icon," she told a weekly media briefing in Islamabad

She said evidence handed to the Pakistan embassy in Kabul was actually a confessional statement of an Afghan national, Hamidullah Akhunzada, who has been accused of masterminding the murder.

With regard to the recent Afghan-India strategic agreement, she said Pakistan was not worried about the agreement. The spokesperson added safeguarding national interests was the focus of Pakistan's foreign policy.

"Pakistan's interaction with members of the international community is solely guided by Pakistan national interest. We are aware of the regional complexities and are trying to address them," she continued.

In the garrison city of Rawalpindi, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said measures had been taken to stop attacks on Pakistani soil launched from Afghanistan.

The army had conducted a series of operations in troubled areas and it was the civilian administration's responsibility to control the situation, Kayani said in his address at a Pak-Saudi joint military exercise.
