Ministry of Foreign Affair’s Press Release On Recent Incident In Torkham Gate

In line with the International Standards, discussions on establishment of installations in Torkham were underway between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a series of accords had been reached in this regard. However, yesterday evening the Pakistani side, unlike the mentioned accords, embarked to establish installations in Torkham, and Pakistani border soldiers opened fire on Afghan security and defense forces. The Afghan security and defense forces retaliated to safeguard the territorial integrity and defend the country and its people. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan considers this tension as unpleasant. The Afghan Government once again emphasizes that its armed forces are always ready to defend their country and people and to react against any kind of threats. Afghanistan adheres to its previous accords with Pakistan and emphasizes peaceful methods and expects from Pakistani side to tackle this problem through diplomatic channels. #
