KABUL – The Ministry of Defense (MoD) on Sunday rejected Pakistan foreign minister’s remarks regarding the Afghan security forces, saying “the entire world has recognized Pakistan a state sponsoring terrorism.”
Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif during his ongoing trip to Washington had alleged that the Afghan security forces were unable to take security responsibility of their country.
He had said around 40 percent of the Afghanistan territory was under Taliban control and also alleged that widespread corruption in the security sector of Afghanistan hampered the abilities of Afghan forces.
MoD spokesman Maj. Gen. Daulat Waziri told Pajhwok Afghan News that the international community recognized Pakistan as state supporting terrorism and had changed relations with Islamabad.
He alleged Pakistan played a key role in training, equipping and supporting terrorists who carried out attacks in neighboring countries.
Waziri said the Pakistani foreign minister accused Afghanistan in order to hide his government’s “double standards” and “regional and “global isolation.” (Pajhwok)
