Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has taken a strong exception to the recent tweet of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani regarding the arrest of Manzoor Pashteen.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, she said it amounts to direct interference in the internal matters of Pakistan.  She said the Afghan leadership should keep in mind the international non-interference principles before issuing such statements.

The Special Assistant said Pakistan is a sovereign country and its constitution dictates to take action against the elements having no regard for the country's constitution. She said it is total negation of diplomatic norms if a country speaks against the rule of law of the other country.

Firdous Ashiq Awan reminded that the valiant armed forces and people of Pakistan lit the candles of peace by rendering their blood. She said no militant can be allowed to play with the peace of Pakistan. She said the law will take its course against the militants.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said Pakistan is a proponent of peace in the region and it believes in collective efforts to achieve the objective of peace in Afghanistan.
