ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday regretted the Afghanistan government’s twisting of facts about some recent incidents of firing along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

In a statement, Foreign Office said: “As a matter of policy, Pakistan does not fire across Pak-Afghan Border. Cross border attacks by Terrorists on Army/FC posts are responded to in self-defense only.”

Pakistan has formally shared location of these terrorist camps in the areas mentioned and has requested the Government of Afghanistan to deploy its forces in these areas to bring it under their effective control.

“We hope Afghanistan will do the needful in line with the mutual understanding on these issues,” it added.
