The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General of Pakistan, Ahmed Sharif, said that 98% of the fencing of the Durand Line has been completed.
According to him, the move will help prevent the crossing of “terrorists."
“Fencing along the 2,611 border ... along the Pak-Afghan frontier is 98 per cent complete,” he said.
But the Islamic Emirate said that the residents of the two sides of the Durand Line disagree about erecting the fencing.
“The fencing was not begun during the time of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and it is no longer ongoing. Of course we want relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan to be good and commuting across should continue,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, Islamic Emirate’s spokesman.
However, Sharif said that there are ongoing negotiations with Afghanistan about the issue.
“The management of the border is not possible one-sided. It is a two-sideded border,” he said.
The military analysts said that Pakistan is involved in terrorist activities and that now it blames Afghanistan.
“The Pakistani people are complaining about terrorists crossing from Afghanistan, but in fact they themselves cultivated (terrorists) and now they are reaping the harvest, said Asadullah Nadim, a military analyst.
