RAWALPINDI: The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Wednesday said that the Afghan Ministry of Defence?s response to operation Khyber 4 is unwarranted.
The Afghan Defence Minister Dawlat Waziri in a statement said that Pakistan military should have launched the military operations ? monitored by the United States and China -- in terrorist centers based in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta.
?Military operations need to be launched on both sides of the Durand Line. Everyone understands the terrorist centers are located in Pakistan; Quetta Council, Peshawar Council and Miranshah Council that are Taliban groups,? Waziri?s spokesman said.
?[The] response runs counter to Pakistan Army?s efforts for better Pak-Afghan coordination and cooperation,? the ISPR statement said.
The statement further said that information about Operation Khyber 4 was shared twice ?verbally and in written? with Afghan Forces as well as the Resolute Support Mission, and Office of the Defense Representative (ODRP).
?Pakistan Army looks forward for trust based security coordination and cooperation for fight against common enemy,? the ISPR press release reads. ?Rhetoric of blames and suggestive allegations are agenda of forces working against order and peace in the region which should be avoided.?
