Karzai warns Pakistan over cross-border incursions

Hamid_Karzai01The former Afghan President Hamid Karzai warned Pakistan over cross-border incursions and called on Pakistani authorities to prevent deterioration of relations between the two nations with cross-border attacks.

Hailing the Pakistani nation for supporting Afghans during the Jihad times, the former president said the Afghan nation remains tolerant and patient regarding the cross-border incursions but warned that the Pakistani authorities should not mistake it for the weakness of the Afghan people.

The reaction by Karzai followed days after the Pakistani air force violated the Afghan air space and bombed various locations in Dangam district of Kunar province, located along the Durand Line.

He said such provocative acts will further intensify tensions among the two nations and will have a negative impact on the relations of the neighboring countries.

The violation by the Pakistani air force followed two days after the Afghan and Pakistani forces exchanged fire along the Durand Line in Goshta district of eastern Nangarhar province.

Thisc omes as a similar incident took place between the Afghan and Pakistani forces along the Durand Line earlier last year.

Local officials in Kandahar province said the clashes between the two sides broke out last year after Afghan border police forces stopped the Pakistani troops to create check posts inside the Afghan soil. -KP
