The acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs, Noorullah Noori, said that Afghanistan does not have a definite border with Pakistan.
Noori added that the border between Islamabad and Kabul is still unclear and that the two countries have imaginary lines. He said this while visiting Torkham crossing in Nangarhar province.
The acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs said that regarding the tensions that arise from time to time on the imaginary lines between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Islamic Emirate is trying to resolve these tensions in a proper way.
“We do not have a formal border with Pakistan and do not have a zero point with Pakistan. This [Durand Line] is an imaginary line between us,” Noorullah Noori said.
Some analysts have different views regarding the right way to end the border tensions with Pakistan.
“This issue should be resolved through a referendum between the people of the two country under the framework of the United Nations,” said Nisar Ahmad Shirzai, a military analyst.
“There might be political reasons for not accepting this border, but there are no legal reasons for it,” said Shaker Hayat, a political analyst.
This comes as all common crossings between Afghanistan and Pakistan were blocked for eleven days, as a result of which huge losses were caused to traders and investors.
