Pak Army takes exception to accusations, threats after Kabul attacks

Islamabad: Taking an exception to unwarranted accusations and threats against Pakistan in the aftermath of Kabul blast, Corps Commanders Conference on Tuesday urged Kabul to look inward and identify the real issues instead of blaming Islamabad, an ISPR statement said.

The country’s top brass met at a Special Corps Commanders Conference that reviewed regional environment in the backdrop of a recent terrorist attack in Afghan capital that killed over 150 people last week.

Expressing solidarity with the people of Afghanistan and security forces on loss of precious loves, Corps Commanders Conference, chaired by the army chief, vowed to support and cooperate with Afghanistan in fight against terrorism and militancy.

The forum also concluded that instead of blaming Pakistan, Afghanistan needs to look inward and identify the real issues.

“While reaffirming continued support to regional peace and stability, the forum reiterated Pak Army’s resolve to defend the motherland against all types of threat.

This reaction from the top brass army conference came in a response to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s alleged allegations against Pakistan at an international peace conference, labelled the “Kabul Process”, aims to build international support for peace.

Ghani’s fresh criticism comes as the Kabul Process, a forum for the discussing security and political issues in the country, is underway.

Afghanistan has long been turning a blind eye to militants operating against Pakistan from Afghan soil.

Despite strained bilateral relations, Pakistan is participating in the multinational conference, having sent a two-member Pakistani delegation headed by Additional Secretary UN and Economic Cooperation Tasneem Aslam
