Pakistan should not attribute its problems to Afghanistan

The Islamic Emirate rejected the claims of Pakistani officials regarding the presence of members of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in the country and considers their use of Afghan soil against Pakistan to be baseless, the private TOLOnews TV channel quoted the Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate Zabihullah Mujahid as saying. He asked Pakistani government not to attribute its problems to Afghanistan and seek insurgents inside its own territory. “We do not allow Afghan soil to be used against Pakistan. Pakistan should also be careful in such cases and try to follow up and solve its problems more correctly within its own country,” said Mujahid as quoted by the TV. Three days after Pakistan’s attack on parts of Paktika and Khost provinces, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, without naming Afghanistan, says he wants good relations with his neighboring country and emphasizes that the soil of neighboring countries should not be used against Pakistan, the TV reported. “We can no longer tolerate terrorist activities resulting from cross-border movements, and misuse of border issues is a red line for us. Pakistan wants to live in peace and brotherhood with its neighboring countries,” said Shahbaz Sharif, the Prime Minister of Pakistan. In the meantime, Pakistan’s Defense Minister in an interview with a Pakistani media outlet has warned that if the issue TTP is not addressed by the Islamic Emirate, the Pakistani will defend its country referring to conducting airstrikes again. Khwaja Muhammad Asif says his country does not want armed action with Kabul, but there will be no doubt about it if necessary. “God willing, there will be no need for further attacks in Afghanistan, but if terrorists from Afghanistan attack Pakistan, we must act to defend ourselves. We believe that dialogue should be the first step and the use of force should be the last option,” He said. Meanwhile, Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, in response to the recent Pakistani army air strikes on Khost and Paktika provinces, quoted by Geo News, said that Pakistan should maintain good relations with the Afghan government regardless of the rulers of Afghanistan. “ The operation of the 18th March 2024 was not targeted against the people, institutions or the military of Afghanistan. We respect the sovereignty and territorial Integrity of Afghanistan and look forward to working together to find joint Solutions encountering terrorism and preventing any terrorist organization from sabotaging bilateral relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan Pakistan,” said Mumtaz Zahrah Baloch, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan. Early Monday Morning (March 18th), Pakistani planes bombed parts of the provinces of Paktika and Khost, resulting in the death of eight people, including children and women. The security forces of the Islamic Emirate in response to the Pakistan airstrikes, launched heavy rocket attacks on their border military posts killing several soldiers. The Islamic Emirate has frequently said it would never interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and will never allow other countries to meddle in the internal affairs of the country.
