Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Tuesday said Pakistan officials have promised they will arrest and extradite to Afghanistan those terrorists whose names have been listed by Kabul and submitted to Islamabad.
 
“Afghanistan’s ambassador to Pakistan on Monday officially submitted the list of 85 terrorists to Pakistan. Pakistan’s responded positively and has said they will arrest and submit the named people to Afghanistan. Now we are waiting for Pakistan’s practical action,” Shekib Mustaghni, MoFA spokesman said.
 
The Afghan ambassador to Pakistan, Omar Zakhilwal, meanwhile said he is discussing with Pakistan officials on a range of issues including Pakistan’s missile attacks on parts of Afghanistan; the reopening of Torkham port; and presence of insurgents on Pakistan soil. He hoped an agreement will be reached soon.
 
Afghanistan Defense Ministry said in reaction to Pakistan deploying forces and weapons along Afghanistan-Pakistan border that fighting between the two countries is a mistake and will damage both. Pakistan should not commit the mistake.
 
“Afghanistan has a populating of more that 30 million people and they all are ready to defend Afghan soil,” Dawlat Waziri, defense ministry spokesman said.
 
Five days ago, after shrine attack in Pakistan, Pakistan closed Torkham port. This action has caused numerous challenges for travelers crossing the border.
 
Afghan government earlier submitted names of 85 terrorists and 32 terrorists training centers to Pakistan. Pakistan in turn submitted names of 76 insurgents who it claims are active in Afghanistan.
 
Although Kabul and Islamabad always have had tensions, those tensions have increased in the past year.
