Karzai denounces Pakistani airstrike on Kunar
KABUL (Pajhwok): Former president Hamid Karzai on Friday strongly denounced airstrike of Pakistani forces on eastern Kunar province, his office said.
On the basis of local officials’ reports, the Pakistani army carried out aerial attack on Tuesday on the Dangam district of Kunar province, a statement from Karzai’s office said.
Although Karzai praised the assistance of Pakistan with Afghans during Jihad period against soviet invasion, he said the tolerance of Afghans against such attacks should not be considered as the weakness of Afghans.
He firmly demanded Pakistan to stop attacking on Afghan territory, otherwise such acts would destroy the links between the two countries, the statement said.
