ISAF slams cross-border attacks
An ISAF statement said the coalition forces would continue to work with Afghan’s Ministry of Defense and Pakistan to end these attacks.
“These ongoing discussions underscore the importance of working together on the opportunities and challenges facing Afghanistan in the days, months and years to come,” said the statement.
The Tripartite Commission meetings (Afghanistan, Pakistan, and ISAF) offer opportunities to discuss wide-ranging issues of tactical, operational and strategic importance.
Over the past two months, cross-border incursions increased along the eastern Kunar province, where missiles fired from Pakistani territory had killed and injured dozens of civilians living in nearby areas.
Afghan officials had taken up the thorny issue at diplomatic level with Islamabad and also said would seek the United Nations Security Council’s assistance to end these strikes.
ISAF said it also welcomes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ recent announcement of talks to be held between Afghan and Pakistan officials.
All these engagements are instrumental to the continued progress we are making towards securing Afghanistan’ sovereignty, safety of Afghan people and our shared goals of a peaceful, stable, and prosperous Afghanistan, added the statement.
