Afghanistan asks Pakistan to open border crossings

Afghanistan's foreign ministry spokesman Shekib Mustaghni on Thursday said Afghanistan is ready to seek United Nations sanctions against suspected terrorist networks and their supporters.

At a conference, Mustaghni said, "it's still waiting for Pakistan to act on a list of wanted terrorists Kabul says are hiding in Pakistan as well as 23 insurgent sanctuaries on Pakistani soil."

Meanwhile, Pakistan has sent a list of 76 suspected insurgents it says have found a safe haven in Afghanistan.

Still, Mustaghni said Afghanistan wants to see tensions between the two neighbours reduced adding Kabul wanted Islamabad to re-open its borders, which were closed after a series of bombings left at least 125 Pakistanis dead.
