Pakistan duping world on border trench: Gen. Raziq (Video)

Pakistan duping world on border trench: Gen. Raziq (Video)

Jan 26, 2015 - 19:31

KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): The Kandahar police chief on Saturday alleged Pakistan was deceiving the international community by digging a 480-kilometre trench along the border on the pretext of preventing militant infiltration.

Gen. Abdul Raziq levelled the allegation while responding to a question from this scribe during a press conference at the Governor’s House media office in the capital of the southern province.

Raziq said the eight-foot deep and 10-foot wide trench in Balochistan province was a project for which Pakistan had received $750 million from the international community.

He opposed the trench when Pakistan first started digging it and the opposition led to a skirmish as well, but later Afghan and the Pakistani governments agreed on the trench to be located 400 metres from the border.
