Foreign Office spokesman has said that effective border management is imperative to curb cross-border movement of terrorists.
Responding to a media query regarding statement attributed to the Governor of Afghan province of Kunar, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria rejected allegations that military operation Khyber-IV is meant to push militants into Afghanistan.
He said that such media headlines are misleading and part of the malicious campaign.
He said Khyber-IV is part of the ongoing counter-terrorism operation Radd-ul-Fasaad and our security forces have achieved success in fighting back terrorists.
The spokesperson said Afghan Defence authorities were accordingly informed about operation Khyber-IV.
