The Islamic Emirate rejects Pakistan's allegations that Afghan citizens were involved in the attack on the country's military base that occurred on July 12.
The Islamic Emirate spokesperson, Zabihullah Mujahid, said that such claims are not in the interest of either country or their people.
Mujahid said on Twitter that Afghanistan is not a threat against any country, including Pakistan.
“We refuse Pakistani officials allegations about the security situation in Afghanistan, and we call them baseless. The Islamic Emirate does not allow anyone to use the territory of Afghanistan against another country. If there is any concern, it should be shared with the officials of the Islamic Emirate face to face, rather than making unnecessary claims in the media and confusing people's minds. Obviously, such claims are not in the interest of both countries and people,” Mujahid tweeted.
The spokesperson of Pakistan's foreign ministry, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, claimed that three terrorists involved in the July 12 attack had been identified as Afghan nationals.
“Three terrorists who attacked the Zhob cantonment belonged to Afghanistan’s Kandahar province,” Dawn quoted Baloch as saying.
Meanwhile, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs for the Cabinet of Pakistan, Hina Rabbani Khar, also said that they have shared with the current Afghan government a number of documents that show the involvement of Afghan citizens in this attack.
"Our proof is their identification. We have concrete evidence that we shared, in many events, Afghan citizens were involved. Each event has its own different facts,” Khar noted.
According to some political analysts, Pakistan is making such claims to discredit the current Afghan government.
"They put pressure on the Afghan government or the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan with these talks to enforce their demands, and receive a commission from the international community," said Aziz Marij, a former diplomat.
"I think that terrorism is a common enemy and should be fought together,” said Wahid Faqiri, a political analyst.
Earlier, the Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry issued a warning that if the current Afghan government did not take measures to fight terrorist organizations, Pakistan would use military force to put an end to these groups' operations.
