Pakistan conveys ‘serious concern’ to Afghanistan over ‘baseless’ allegations

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has conveyed strong concerns with Afghanistan over the allegations leveled by the latter as such accusations erode mutual trust, the Foreign Office said on Monday.

“Pakistan has conveyed its serious concerns to the Afghan side by making a strong demarche with the Ambassador of Afghanistan in Islamabad on the recent irresponsible statements and baseless allegations made by the Afghan leadership,” Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafiz Chaudhri said in a statement.

He emphasised that groundless accusations erode trust and vitiate the environment between the two brotherly countries and disregard constructive role being played by Pakistan in facilitating the Afghan peace process.

The Afghan side has been urged to effectively utilise the available forums like Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS) to address all bilateral issues.

On May 12, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa said Pakistan sincerely supported the peace process and a prosperous, stable and peaceful Afghanistan is in the best interest of the region in general and Pakistan in particular.
