Pakistan snubs Afghan diplomat in Foreign office over border firing

Pakistan Foreign Office summoned the Afghan chargé d’affaires to record Pakistan's protest over the unprovoked firing and shelling from across the border. 

The Foreign Office also handed over a demarche to Afghan chargé d’affaires Abdul Nasir Yousufi.

During the press briefing, the Foreign Office spokesperson also said that statements by Afghan President Ghani were mere allegations, and that such statements would not help the peace process in any way.

He said that Pakistan had tried its best to bring the Afghan Taliban and the Kabul government together in the peace process.

India's negative role is increasing problems in Afghanistan, said the spokesperson, adding that New Delhi was using Afghan soil for its own hate-filled agenda.
