KABUL (Pajhwok): Pakistan will send delegations to Afghanistan and Iran for talks with top officials on ensuring their soil is not used against the country after a suicide bombing killed scores of police in a mosque in Peshawar.

Special assistant to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Faisal Karim Kundi, said delegations would be sent to Tehran and Kabul to “ask them to ensure that their soil is not used by terrorists against Pakistan”.

A senior Pakistani police official in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province where Monday’s blast took place told AFP the Kabul delegation would hold “talks with the top brass”.

“When we say top brass, it means… Afghan Taliban chief Hibatullah Akhundzada,” he said on condition of anonymity.

But on Wednesday Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi warned Pakistan should “not pass the blame to others”. “They should see the problems in their own house,” he said. “Afghanistan should not be blamed.”
