Islamabad has shared with Kabul an 'aide-memoire' apparently containing evidence that militants are using Afghan soil to launch terrorist attacks inside Pakistan.
The message was given as Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry called in Afghan Deputy Head of Mission Sayed Abdul Nasir Yousufi on Tuesday, the ministry said in a statement Wednesday.
He was summoned a day after a suicide attack killed 13 people and wounded scores more in Pakistani city of Lahore. The attack was claimed by Jamaat-ur-Ahrar, a faction of the Pakistan Taliban.
During the meeting, Pakistan expressed the continuing terrorist attacks on Pakistan soil by the terrorist outfit from sanctuaries inside Afghanistan, according to the statement.
“Attention of the DHM was also drawn to the earlier actionable intelligence shared by our authorities with the Afghan side,” the statement said. “Afghanistan was urged to take urgent measures to eliminate the terrorists and their sanctuaries, financiers and handlers operating from its territory.”
The Pakistani side also shared an ‘aide-memoire’ containing “details of the terrorist attacks and supporting information,” according to the statement.
