Islamabad to materialize pledges with Afghan leaders
The Jang newspaper quoted the spokesman as saying that Pakistan knew about Afghan president’s letter addressed to Pakistani leaderships through media.
He reiterated Pakistan would continue maintaining good neighborly relations with Kabul.
Two days back, a well-placed source in the government told Pajhwok Afghan News that the president had dispatched a letter to civilian and military officials of the neighboring state.
Another source said that the president had demanded Pakistan to initiate eight steps against Taliban in the next three weeks and demonstrate sincerity to move the stalled Afghan peace process forward.
In the letter, the source added, Ghani urged Pakistan to put Taliban leaders under house arrest, barring them from any activity.
Pakistan must also conduct operations against Haqqani network, destroy Taliban safe havens on its soil and should not treat wounded Taliban fighters, were among other demands mentioned in the letter.
