Pakistan rejects ‘allegations’ by Afghanistan

Pakistan has noted with deep concern the allegation by the Acting Afghan Defence Minister regarding the use of its air space in the US counter-terrorism drone operation in Afghanistan.

“In the absence of any evidence, as acknowledged by the Afghan Minister himself, such conjectural allegations are highly regrettable and defy the norms of responsible diplomatic conduct,” the foreign office statement said.

Pakistan reaffirmed its belief in the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states and condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, the foreign office spokesman Asim Iftikhar said.

“We urge the Afghan interim authorities to ensure the fulfilment of international commitments made by Afghanistan not to allow the use of its territory for terrorism against any country.” 

Pakistan’s late-night reaction came after the Afghan Taliban government’s allegations that the country was allowing the United States to use its air space for drones.

“According to our information the drones are entering through Pakistan to Afghanistan, they use Pakistan’s airspace, we ask Pakistan, don’t use your airspace against us,” Mullah Yaqoob, who is the son of former Taliban spiritual leader Mullah Omar, had alleged.
