Ghani, Sharif agree on putting up joint anti-terror front

PESHAWAR: Pakistan stands shoulder to shoulder with Afghanistan in the war against terrorism and extremism, a common challenge for the neighbours, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said.

In a telephone call late on Saturday, the prime minister assured President Ashraf Ghani: “Pakistan remains committed to deepening cooperation with Afghanistan in the war against terrorism.”

Sharif made the call to Ghani to convey his condolences on behalf of the people and the government of Pakistan over Saturday’s terrorist attacks on protestors in Kabul. At least 80 people were killed and hundreds wounded.

While vehemently denouncing the twin blasts as a brutal act of terror, the prime minister extended his deepest sympathies to the victims’ families and wished the wounded people speedy recovery.

Ghani thanked Sharif for expressing solidarity with the government and people of Afghanistan, saying both countries had been facing repeated terror attacks over the years.

“We appreciate your compassion and concern for the people of Afghanistan. We are together in fighting the war on terror,” remarked the president. -Pajhwok
