This is admission of the fact that Pakistan supported Afghanistan when situation in the region was deteriorated. Despite its own limitations, Pakistan welcomed Afghan refugees and fulfilled their economic needs. During civil war in Afghanistan, refugees again came to Pakistan . The global community has recognized Pakistan’s efforts for Afghanistan. Pakistan wants peace and stability in the region. Pakistan has fulfilled all its responsibilities as neighboring country and helped Afghanistan on humanitarian grounds. Afghanistan government should realize our efforts and halt anti-Pakistan activities.
Dr. Manzoor Khan Afridi (IR Expert):
Pakistan has always supported Afghanistan. When Soviet Union attacked Afghanistan, Pakistan welcomed Afghan refugees. They were allowed to live in all provinces of Pakistan . More than 3 million Afghans came and settled here. The global community always appreciates our efforts in this regard. Pakistan has protected the Afghan refugees and given them employment opportunities. Out of all neighboring countries including China, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan, Pakistan has supported more to Afghanistan. Countries like India are using Afghanistan as a tool against Pakistan . An entirely new Afghan generation has evolved in Pakistan and they love our country.
