PESHAWAR, 04 December: Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has alleged that Pakistan is not taking effective measures to eliminate terrorism in the region.

Speaking at the sixth Heart of Asia ministerial conference in Indian city Amritsar on Sunday, Ashraf Ghani snubbed a $500 million pledge from Pakistan for development projects in Afghanistan, saying it would be better if Pakistan utilize this fund for eliminating terrorism in their country.

Delegates from fourty countries are participating in the two-day moot.

He said that there are 31 militant groups in Afghanistan and stressed for joint efforts to defeat terrorism from the war-torn country.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his opening remarks termed terrorism as the biggest threat to Afghanistan’s peace and the region.

Modi said that joint efforts should be done to counter terrorists and their masters. He said India was committed to peace in Afghanistan.

Advisor to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz said that Pakistan had always strived for peaceful resolution of the Afghan conflict.

He slammed Ashraf Ghani for hurling baseless allegations against Pakistan and called for evolving a joint and purposeful strategy for lasting peace in Afghanistan.

He said it is unrealistic approach to blame Pakistan for the recent upsurge in violence, rather the whole scenario should be viewed in an objective and holistic view approach.

 

Peaceful resolution to all the longstanding issues is the only way forward for regional cooperation and connectivity, he stressed.

He added that Pakistan is ready to extend every kind of cooperation for lasting peace in Afghanistan, saying Afghanistan should avoid leveling false and baseless accusations at Pakistan.
