The Corps Commander Conference was held in which matters pertaining to regional security were discussed. The Commanders make the decision of national interests with mutual consensus. Pakistan itself is the victim of terrorism as many people have sacrificed their lives in this regard. Afghan government is under the strong influence of Indian government and there are divided opinions in the country as well. Pakistan is fighting a crucial war against terrorism and it is unfortunate than Afghanistan rather than to support Pakistan in this war always alleges Pakistan to be involved in terror attacks in Afghanistan.

The Corps Commander Conference held today is vital as Pak Army denounced the recent terror attacks in Kabul. It was a tragic incident and a point of concern for international community as well. India is involved in providing training and financial assistance to the terrorists to carry out terror activities in Pakistan. The government has always tried to normalize its bilateral relations with Afghanistan. There are conflicts and difference of opinions between Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah so Aghhan government should focus on to resolve its internal issues rather than to blame Pakistan.
