Pakistan 'actively engaged' with NATO, ISAF on cross-border attacks issue

Islamabad, Fri, 27 Jul 2012 ANI

Islamabad, July 27 (ANI): Pakistan has said it is actively engaged with Afghanistan and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) on the issue of cross-border attacks from Afghan provinces of Kunar and Nooristan.

The Daily Times quoted Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Khan, as saying, that Pakistan has taken the attacks seriously and hoped that the Afghan Government would take corrective measures soon.

Rocket firing by militants from across the Durand Line, and raids on Pakistani check posts along the border have been causing causalities among Pakistani soldiers. Pakistani forces too started shelling across the border in Kunar and Nooristan areas in response, which triggered a strong reaction from NATO and Afghanistan, the paper said.

Khan said the head of High Peace Council, Salahuddin Rabbani, would visit Pakistan soon. (ANI)
