The army’s spokesman, Major General Babar Iftikhar, has said that Pakistan has no reason to mistrust the Afghan Taliban. Who has promised they would not allow anyone to use Afghan soil to launch terror attacks into the neighbouring country.
He said Pakistan was in contact with the Taliban to ensure peace and security within its own borders.
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director-General Babar Iftikhar was speaking to the Jeddah-based Urdu website Urdu News.
General Iftikhar said border management was being improved to completely secure the region in near future.
Working against all odds, Pakistan has fenced 90 percent of the border and continues to improve it, the ISPR DG said.
Replying to a question about Pakistan’s military support for the Afghan Taliban, General Iftikhar said. The way Indian media covered the Taliban’s offensive in Panjshir has proved that it relies on fake news.
Some of the well-known international media outlets and a few Indian journalists. Have satirised the Indian media coverage of events in Afghanistan. That attempted to implicate Pakistan in Afghanistan’s internal affairs, General Iftikhar said.
Indian media continues to spin stories about Afghanistan.
Earlier this month, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa expressed the desire for a stable government in Afghanistan. The Indian media spun his statement claiming that the army chief had said they would “help” the Taliban form an inclusive government.
