PESHAWAR, 7 October: Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said Pakistan is concerned over Indian role in the new US policy about Afghanistan.

The minister said while talking to media persons at the Pakistani embassy in US on Friday that the Pak-US ties have taken a new turn after announcement of new policy by the US about Afghanistan and South Asia. He said the US is concerned about the future of Afghanistan, but Pakistan has also expressed concerns several times over situation in the region. He said Pakistan is extremely concerned over Indian efforts for destabilising Balochistan. He said Pakistan believes in continuing efforts until complete restoration of peace in Afghanistan.

Khawaja Asif said Pakistan has eliminated hideouts of all non-state actors and operations of law enforcement agencies are continuing. He said Pakistan has strong reservations on militant safe havens in Afghanistan. He said most terror attacks in Pakistan are being planned in militant safe havens in Afghanistan.

US President Donald Trump while announcing new US policy about Afghanistan and South Asia on 21 August had accused Pakistan of providing safe havens to militants who attack US forces in Afghanistan. Pakistan had strongly rejected Trump’s allegations.
