Afghan Presidential Palace says Pakistan should eliminate the terrorist sanctuaries in its soil instead of closing Torkham border crossing.
"We expect regional countries to eliminate terrorist sanctuaries and their recruitment camps as they carrying out subversive activities, instead of closing borders," said Shah Hussian Murtazawi, a spokesman for President Ashraf Ghani while referring to Pakistan.
It comes a day after Pakistan's Armed forces spokesman,
Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor has announced the closure of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border with immediate effect due to security reasons.
"Pakistan-Afghanistan Border closed with immediate effects till further orders due to security reasons," Ghafoor wrote on Twitter.
