Pakistan Seeks Counterterrorism Cooperation with Afghanistan

On Thursday, Pakistan reiterated its demand for Afghanistan to extradite the leaders of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), a designated terrorist group. The Foreign Office spokesperson emphasized the need for Afghanistan to take immediate and effective action against these terrorist entities, urging the handover of TTP leadership to Pakistan and the extradition of individuals involved in terrorist activities inside Pakistan. The statement was made in response to the thirty-third report submitted to the UN Security Council, revealing TTP’s links with Al Qaeda and other militant groups.

Additionally, the spokesperson addressed the ongoing dispute over the Durand Line, asserting that the Pakistan-Afghanistan border is an internationally recognized and legally valid reality. This statement comes in contrast to the acting Taliban Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs referring to the Durand Line as an “imaginary line.” The Durand Line has historically been a contentious issue, with Afghanistan disputing its legitimacy as a border.

The spokesperson also downplayed Indian allegations of terrorism against Pakistan, deeming them neither new nor credible. She highlighted India’s tendency to recklessly level terrorism charges against others, even in the context of cricket matches. However, she emphasized that Pakistan’s recent claim of India’s involvement in assassinations in Pakistan remains unchallenged by Delhi, backed by credible evidence.

In response to concerns about the cypher episode involving former Prime Minister Imran Khan and former Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, the spokesperson assured that the communication system remains secure. A recent audit of communication systems reaffirmed their safety and protection, dispelling any compromise to the state’s cypher security system.
