Iran and Pakistan are trying to prevent mining in Afghanistan

A number of Afghan experts say that Pakistan is trying to spread insecurity in the mining sites of Afghanistan by creating problems in the bordering areas.

General Aminullah Amar Khail, former Afghan border Commander and one of the experts says: “Pakistan’s ISI and spy agencies of Iran are playing a perilous game for not wanting Afghanistan to stand on its own feet. People from Dangam district of Kunar say that Pakistani troops are within 14 kilometers of their territory.  Pakistan wants the provinces within its reach to collapse.”

According to reports, rockets have been launching from Pakistan’s soil into bordering provinces of Afghanistan that have been causing major losses and casualties in the affected areas. Some reports say that Pakistani troops have crossed the border and entered the Afghan soil.

Meanwhile, Spokesperson to Ministry of Internal Affairs Sidiq Sidiqui acknowledges the problems persisting in the Afghan-Pak border; however, he denies the reports on the entrance of Pakistani troops to the Afghan soil.

“Border Police are present on the borders and are always trying to avoid the influence of Pakistan on Afghan soil.”

Afghanistan and Pakistan have long been encountering border tensions. Recent rocket strikes from Pakistan on Afghanistan soil have intensified the political tension between the two.

Officials from Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs say that if Pakistan does not stop its rocket launches, Afghanistan will complain against them at the UN Security Council.

Afghan experts demand the officials to take quick actions and refer the situation to the UN Security Council as soon as possible.
