Kabul play­ing into some­one’s hands: Nisar Will take re­venge over Ma­jor Ali’s mar­tyr­dom: Asif

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL - STAFF REPORTER

IS­LAM­ABAD—In­te­rior Min­is­ter Chaud­hary Nisar Ali on Tues­day said that Pak­istan bor­der man­age­ment was mak­ing sin­cere ef­forts to pre­vent in­fil­tra­tion from both sides of the bor­der but the very ef­forts have been sab­o­taged lately.

He said Ma­jor Jawad and other per­son­nel had been mar­tyred due to un­pro­voked fir­ing, which was re­ally in­tol­er­a­ble.

The min­is­ter also said that now Afghanistan had to de­cide whether it would rec­og­nize Pak­istan’s ef­forts for re­gional sta­bil­ity or play into some­one’s hands.

Mean­while, De­fence Min­is­ter Khawaja Asif on Tues­day stated that re­venge shall be taken over the mar­tyr­dom of Ma­jor Ali Jawad Changezi, who got se­verely in­jured as a re­sult of fir­ing from the Afghan forces and suc­cumbed to his wounds ear­lier in the day.

Asif tweeted that Ma­jor Ali’s blood will not go in vain, adding that the en­e­mies of the coun­try want Pak­istan to lose the suc­cess it has made as a re­sult of Oper­a­tion Zarb-e-Azb.

Later, talk­ing to a pri­vate TV chan­nel, Asif stated that Pak­istan had al­ways wanted the bet­ter­ment for Afghanistan but the massacre be­ing car­ried out in the coun­try traces back to Mullah Fa­zlul­lah who is in Afghanistan and has the sup­port of the Afghan govern­ment.

De­fence Min­is­ter said that the is­sue will pro­long if the Afghan of­fi­cials do not al­low the Pak­istani forces to man­age the bor­der af­fairs. ‘Afghanistan will have to be an­swer­able if our blood spills’, he said.
