Islamabad: Pakistan on Sunday said the UN Analytical and Monitoring Team vindicates Pakistan’s longstanding position on threats posed to Pakistan and the region by groups like the TTP, JuA, HuA and their affiliates, based in Afghanistan.
Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said Pakistan, in the past, had drawn attention of the international community to the “support provided to TTP and its affiliates by the hostile intelligence agencies. One of the results of that support was the merger of JuA, HuA, and other splinter groups of LeJ with TTP in Afghanistan last year.”
Pakistan has also raised the issue of cross border attacks carried out by TTP on security forces deployed on its side of the border.
Pakistan acknowledges UNMT’s efforts in exposing the hostile agencies’ sponsored collusion of anti-Pakistan elements in Afghanistan. Pakistan expects that a dedicated effort will be launched by ANDSF and RSM to neutralise this threat emanating from Afghanistan, he added.
Pakistan stands firm in its resolve to partner with international community against the menace of terrorism, he said.
