ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office (FO) of Pakistan has on Saturday expressed grief over Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s recent remarks based on speculation against Pakistan, ARY News reported.
The FO said the Afghan government should avoid allegations on the basis of mere speculations.
The Afghan president has blamed Pakistan for “in practice maintaining distinction between good and bad terrorists.”
During his speech at Warsaw Summit, Ashraf Ghani said: “Our regional initiatives with neighbors are beginning to yield significant cooperative dividends. The exception is with Pakistan–despite clear commitments to a quadrilateral peace process, their dangerous distinction between good and bad terrorists is being maintained in practice.
“The key problem among our neighboring states is an absence of agreed rules of the game, thus we seek regional and global support in creating those rules, which will bind us to collective security and harmony,” he continued.
The foreign office said it was unfortunate to hold Pakistan accused by the Afghan leadership at NATO meeting.
“Peace in Afghanistan is in Pakistan’s own interest. Pakistan will continue its efforts to establish peace in Afghanistan. We expect cooperation from the Afghan government in war on terror,” he said.
The FO said close cooperation between foreign offices of both the countries was need of the hour.
