PESHAWAR, 18 May: Pakistan has rejected the demand of Afghanistan to withdraw troops from Chaman border.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), officials of both the countries held a Flag Meeting on Bab-e-Dosti (Friendship Gate) at Chaman border on Wednesday. The Pakistani delegation was led by Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan, while the Afghan delegation was led by a former brigadier of Afghan border police.

The Afghan officials during the meeting demanded Pakistan to withdraw troops from Luqman and Jehangir villages on the border. However, Pakistani officials told them that the troops are deployed on Pakistani side of the border and will stay there. Both the sides agreed to maintain ceasefire on the border.

At least 11 people were killed and several others, including FC soldiers, were injured few days ago when Afghan troops opened fire on Jehangir and Luqman villages on Chaman border at a time when Pakistani officials were carrying out population census in the area.
