Pakistan has started fencing of entire Pak-Afghan border to check infiltration.

According to ISPR, the fencing will be done in phases.

In the first phase, high infiltration prone border areas in Bajaur, Mohmand and Khyber Agencies are being fenced.

Fencing of remaining border areas including Balochistan will be executed in the second phase.

Besides fencing, Pakistan Army and FC Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are constructing new forts and border posts to improve surveillance and defensibility.

These measures are being taken to improve security situation along the Pak-Afghan border.  

A secure Pak-Afghan border is in common interest of both countries and a well-coordinated border security mechanism is essential for enduring peace and stability.
