ISLAMABAD: Afghanistans Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Omar Zakhilwal has started leveling baseless accusations against Pakistan after recent clashes at the Torkham crossing point between both countries, reported on Thursday.
According to Afghan media, the ambassador has alleged Pakistan of violating agreement by constructing gate at Torkhan border.
He said that it was decided earlier between both countries that the matter would be resolved by higher officials through negotiations but Pakistan Army went ahead to construct it without taking Afghanistan into loop.
He also warned of severe consequences if Pakistan will not stop gates construction.
Moreover, Omar Zakhilwal has also threatened to expose all the secrets pertaining to Torkham border.
Currently, the Pakistan Army is continuing with the construction of a gate at Torkham border while Afghanistan government has assured of not interfering after four days of unprovoked firing.
An army major named Ali Jawad Changezi lost his life in hospital after he was shifted there for treatment of injuries that he sustained in Afghan shelling. Sources stated that the martyr was inspecting artillery positioned at the border when he was injured.
Two security personnel were injured on Wednesday taking the tally to over 15.
The neighbouring country resorted to coercive methods during construction of a gate at Torkham border which is aimed at keeping a check on cross-border movement in light of different terror attacks across the country by terrorists that entered Pakistan through the route.
According to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations, the gate at the Torkham border was being constructed at least 37 metres within the countrys territory.
ISPR Director General Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa stated that the gate was required to check documentation and interrogate the ones crossing the border, if necessary.
In the recent past, evidence collected at different targeted sites in Peshawar and other cities suggested terrorists movement into Pakistan from Afghanistan.
