In a meeting with Afghan Ambassador Mr. Janan Mosazai today, Adviser to the Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs Mr. Sartaj Aziz emphasized that Pakistan sincerely believes that a peaceful, stable and united Afghanistan is in Pakistan’s vital interest.
Referring to allegations emanating from Afghan institutions and senior officials, implicating Pakistan in insurgent attacks, acts of terrorism, and cross-border shelling, the Adviser stressed that if the Afghan side has any evidence to substantiate these allegations, it should be shared with Pakistan.
The Adviser further underscored that Pakistan remains committed to building a friendly and good-neighbourly relationship with Afghanistan, on the basis of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity. In this regard, we will continue our efforts to meaningfully address mutual concerns and strengthen trust and understanding. For this purpose, both sides must utilize the bilateral mechanisms to reinforce Pakistan-Afghanistan security cooperation and improve border controls and management.

Pakistanis traveling/working in Afghanistan are advised to avoid pictures or carrying cameras while outdoors. Several instances have been reported where Afghan police and NDS personnel harassed and arrested Pakistanis for taking pictures or carrying cameras. It has come to the notice of this Embassy that certain security outfits in Afghanistan have increased their harassment of Pakistani citizens. Possession of cameras or taking pictures provide an excuse to them to harass Pakistani nationals in the absence of any other provocation.
All Pakistani citizens are advised to let their employers and the Embassy informed in case they face any harassment.
