Pakistan rejects baseless Afghan allegations- National Security Committee meeting resolves to defend Pakistan against all aggressions
The meeting observed that Pakistan is the only country in the Afghan scenario which has achieved clear and measurable success against terrorism despite limited capacity and at huge human and economic costs.
Pakistan will strongly defend itself against all intrigues and aggression by inimical forces. This resolve was reaffirmed by National Security Committee, which met in Islamabad with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the chair. The meeting outrightly rejected Afghan allegations on Pakistan and its agencies for deteriorating law and order in that country. Pakistan has not only remained committed to a peaceful and stable Afghanistan but also worked with all regional and global initiatives to that end.

Whenever an incident occurs in Afghanistan, it starts blaming Pakistan to be involved in it. The blame game is not the solution to any issue. Both Pakistan and Afghanistan being the neighbors should cooperate with each other for peace and prosperity in the region. Pakistan is fighting a crucial war against terrorism. It is the time that Afghan government should review its policies regarding Pakistan. Peaceful Afghanistan is in best interest of Pakistan.
