Enhance security along Pakistan-Afghanistan border to combat terrorism: Javed Bajwa

Welcoming the recent proposals by Afghan authorities to take forward the mutual coordination between Islamabad and Kabul against terrorism, Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) of Pakistan General Qamar Javed Bajwa asked security forces to adopt more effective measures to prevent illegal
cross-border movement of terrorists.
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that Gen Bajwa. chairing a high level meeting at headquarters here today, affirmed that enhanced security arrangements along Pakistan-Afghanistan boundary are to fight common
enemy ” terrorists ” of all hues and colours.
Pakistan and Afghanistan, the COAS said, have fought against terrorism and shall continue this effort together.
He welcomed the recent proposals by Afghan authorities to take forward the mutual coordination between Islamabad and Kabul against terrorism, ISPR said.
The direction of Gen Bajwa to troops came a day after Kabul reacted angrily to cross-border shelling by Pakistani forces even though images clearly showed that the camps and training compounds of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and its splinter group Jamaatul Ahrar (JuA) in Afghanistan were targeted in the artillery barrage.
In a statement, Afghanistan foreign ministry had expressed hope that the attack would stop and ties between the two neighbours would return to normal, but at the same time threatened to use ”all its internal, regional and international power in response to Pakistan actions.”
Pakistani troops attacked TTP and JuA camps in Afghanistan after about 90 devotees were killed and hundreds wounded in a terrorist attack at a Sufi shrine in Pakistan last week.
