KABUL - The Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan strongly reacted at the accusations of the foreign minister of Pakistan against the Afghan security forces, Khaama Press has reported.
The Ministry of Defense spokesman Gen. Dawlat Waziri said Islamabad is attempting to divert the attention of the international community with baseless accusations.
Gen. Waziri said the attempts by Islamabad is also aimed at the taking the country out of the isolation as the world knows that the country is providing sanctuaries to the terror groups, provide logistics and trainings, and export terrorism to its neighbors.
The foreign minister of Pakistan had earlier claimed that one of the reasons behind the ongoing conflict is the sale of weapons to the militants by the Afghan security.
This comes as pressures are on the rise on Islamabad regarding the terror safe of the terrorist groups which have remained intact despite the country launched a major offensive in its tribal regions, he further said.
The Afghan and US officials are saying that the Taliban and the notorious Haqqani terrorist network are still operating from their safe havens in Pakistan, calling it one of the main reasons behind the growing instability in the country.
President Donald Trump in August strongly criticized Pakistan for harboring and sheltering terror groups.
