PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Former interior minister Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao has called for friendly and cordial relations between Islamabad and Kabulinfo-icon.

“The impasse between the two neighbouring countries is directly affecting Pakhtuns on both sides of the border,” said Sherpao, also an ex-chief minister.

Speaking at a public meeting in Charsadda district on Sunday, he said the Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) had been supportive of greater cooperation between the two countries.

The war on terror had taken a heavy toll on political, cultural and socio-economic structures of Pakistaninfo-icon’s tribal areas near the Durand Lineinfo-icon.

Strenuous efforts were needed to bring the tribal population into national mainstream, he said, acknowledging tribes-people had rendered unprecedented sacrifices in the past decade.

“The internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Khyber, Orakzai, North Waziristan and South Waziristan agencies are still waiting to be sent back home. The government has no comprehensive plan to compensate them,” Sherpao added.
