PESHAWAR, 09 June: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has told Afghan President Ashraf Ghani that chief of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Maulana Fazalullah and other militants have operating their networks from across the border to create instability and promote terrorism in Pakistan.

This he said during an unscheduled meeting with Afghan president on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Astana in Kazakhstan on Friday.

According to media reports, the meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and President Ghani was not scheduled but it was held on the insistence of Afghan president.

The meeting, which lasted for about an hour, was also attended by Prime Minister’s adviser on foreign affairs, Sartaz Aziz.

Sources revealed that issues related to terrorism, border fencing, bilateral trade and regional security were discussed in the meeting.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told Afghan president that baseless allegations of terrorism were being hurled at Pakistan but Afghanistan did not provide any proof so far.

He stressed that instead of hurling allegations against each other, bilateral issues should be resolved through dialogue.

Both the leaders termed the meeting very fruitful and said that a joint communiqué would also be released.
