KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Friday said militants had long been attacking Afghanistaninfo-icon from their sanctuaries in Pakistaninfo-icon and Kabul had always offered Islamabad its sincere cooperation in dealing with the twin scourge of terrorism and extremism.

Pakistan on Thursday called on Afghanistan to stop Talibaninfo-icon militants fleeing ongoing airstrikes in northwest tribal region from entering its territory.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Tasnim Aslam said Islamabad had emphasized that Pakistani soil should not be used against its neighbours and the Afghan soil should not be used against Pakistan.

Reacting to Aslam’s remarks, her Afghan counterpart Ahmad Shakib Mustaghni in a statement said the roots of terrorism and extremism existed in Pakistan.

“Terrorist sanctuaries and training centres are in Pakistan, from where Afghanistan has come under attacks over the past many years,” he said, adding the Afghans had suffered a lot due to those attacks.

He said Kabul had repeatedly urged Islamabad to wage a sincere and realistic war against terrorism on its soil. Kabul had assured all possible cooperation in this regard, he added.
