Missile strikes from Pakistan not a threat: Border police chief

Missile strikes from Pakistan not a threat: Border police chief

Oct 31, 2012 - 18:46

JALALABAD (PAN): Afghanistan border police commander Maj. Gen. Gul Nabi Ahmadzai on Wednesday said cross-border attacks originating from Pakistan did not impose a major threat to the country.  

Ahmadzai told Pajhwok Afghan News after a meeting on border problems at Torkham Port, where NATO representatives and other border officials were present.

He said the missile attacks launched by Pakistan army into eastern Kunar and Nangarhar provinces did not threat Afghanistan and neighbouring soldiers are yet to cross the border. 

"Pakistan has modern weapons, the attacks were carried about 20 to 30 kilometres from the joint border and we retaliated to those attacks close to the borders," he said.

He said Pakistan did not want a strong government in Afghanistan and the cross-border attacks were aimed to destablise the country.

"We know our rights, borders and nobody can take away our privileges through such acts," said Ahmadzai, and suggested that a parliamentary group should be created to resolve border problems between both countries.

Participants at the meeting also discussed problems faced by Afghan traders at Torkham Port. mm/vp
