Islamabad, Sep 16 : Pakistan has asked Afghanistan to guard against playing into the hands of India, amid tensions in the region.
Citing officials, The Nation reported that several senior Pakistani officers had reminded Afghanistan of their country’s role in maintaining peace in the war-torn nation, and that thousands of Afghan refugees had taken shelter in Pakistan.
“We believe India is misguiding Afghanistan, told Afghanistan to ensure peace along the border. We would not tolerate cross-border attacks,” said an official.
Another Pakistani official reportedly told Afghanistan to not mistake its “softness” as “weakness”, and Pakistan had the right to reply back.
Recently, three Pakistani soldiers were killed and one injured, in firing during construction of a wall along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
