Pak envoy summoned over attack on Ibrahimkhel
KABUL (PAN): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday summoned the Pakistani ambassador in Kabul and asked him to ensure that the perpetrators of last week’s attack on an Afghan diplomat in Islamabad were detained and brought to justice.
Naqeebullah Ibrahimkhel, the third secretary at the Afghan embassy in Islamabad, was shot and wounded in the heart of the city on Wednesday. He was shot in the leg while walking from a cluster of shops to his house.
Addressing a news conference in Kabul, the foreign ministry spokesman said they had handed a demarche to Pakistan’s acting ambassador Jan Bahadur.
Jan Musazai said Bahadur had been asked to tell Pakistani authorities to arrest the attackers at the earliest possible. “We want the Pakistan government to boost security for Afghan diplomats there.”
The diplomat, currently recovering in hospital, is in stable condition, according to Musazai, who called for Islamabad to take effective steps to arrest the assailants.
