KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Adviser to Pakistani Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Thursday his country was not breaching any agreement by constructing a gate on Torkham border and will go on with the project to make effective border management possible.

In his policy statement, Aziz told the National Assembly that Pakistaninfo-icon had informed the Afghan authorities about its intention to build the gate and the construction work had started back in November 2014.

"When Afghan authorities expressed their reservations, we took them into confidence and told them that the gate is constructed inside Pakistani territory," said the Adviser.

He said such border management steps will also help both countries in their combined efforts to combat terrorism as "unregulated movement allows infiltration of terrorists and smugglers", adding that all the other border crossings with Afghanistaninfo-icon will also be regulated in near future.
