Islamabad (Web Desk): Islamabad has conveyed its serious concerns to Kabul over irresponsible statements and baseless allegations made by the Afghan leadership against Pakistan.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri, in a statement said, the Afghan side has been urged to effectively utilize the available forums like Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity to address all bilateral issues.

The spokesperson emphasized that groundless accusations erode trust and vitiate the environment between the two brotherly countries and disregard constructive role being played by Pakistan in facilitating the Afghan peace process.

The FO statement comes days after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani — in an interview with a German publication — claimed that Pakistan “operated an organised system of support" for the Taliban, adding that the Taliban "receive logistics there, their finances are there and recruitment is there”.

“The names of the various decision-making bodies of the Taliban are Quetta Shura, Miramshah Shura and Peshawar Shura — named after the Pakistani cities where they are located. There is a deep relationship with the state,” Ghani told German weekly news magazine.
