KABUL (Pajhwok): Pakistan’s foreign ministry has summoned Afghan Chargé d’Affaires in Islamabad over recent clash in Spinboldak-Chaman crossing, according to a statement on Friday.

Pakistan’s strong condemnation over recent incidents of unprovoked cross-border shelling by Afghan Border Security Forces in the Chaman-Spin Boldak area, resulting in loss of life, injuries and damage to property, was conveyed.

It was reiterated that protection of civilians remained the responsibility of both sides and that recurrence of these incidents must be prevented. It was agreed to use established institutional mechanisms in this regard.

The statement said that Pakistan remains committed to maintaining fraternal relations with Afghanistan. “Peace along the Pak-Afghan border is intrinsic to this end.”

Afghanistan Defence Ministry on its twitter handle wrote: “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan considers the dialogue as a reasonable way to solve any problem; negative actions and making excuses for war are not in the interest of any of the parties.”
