ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said Pakistan was willing to set up joint patrols with Afghanistan to counter militants along their porous border.

He said that Pakistan welcomes the idea of joint patrolling and joint posts along the border with Afghanistan.

 PM remarks came in response to President Donald Trump called on Pakistan to do more to eliminate militant sanctuaries, a long-standing US demand.

He said that Pakistan would put up a fence there, saying that Afghans were also welcome to put up another fence on their side,” he said, while talking to reporters.

Abbasi points out US has not issued demands over Afghanistan and denied Pakistan was harbouring militants, insisting it was “fighting agents of chaos. He said hideouts were not on Pakistan’s side rather on other side of the border.
