Senior Afghan officials to visit Pakistan amid increasing tensions

After statements of President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah, a high ranking Afghan delegation is expected to visit Pakistan to present what President Ashraf Ghani and some officials alleged ‘clear documents’ on Pakistan’s ‘interference’ in internal affairs of Afghanistan.

The officials and some experts said that the Afghan government should present ‘clear documents’ to Pakistan on ‘interference’ across the border. They said that the Afghan government should start a ‘cold war’ against Pakistan if there would be no good outcome.

After 10 months of his leadership, President issued harsh statements against Pakistan, saying the Afghan government hoped peace but Pakistan still sending ‘terrorists’ into Afghanistan. Based on his statements, Ghani announced a delegation of senior government officials to visit Pakistan along with the ‘documents.’

Rahmatullah Nabil, Afghanistan Intelligence Chief, Masoom Stanekzai, Acting defense minister and Salahuddin Rabbani, foreign minister are reported to be among the delegation members.

Afghan political expert Ahmad Saiedi said that the Afghan delegation should present evidence of the past and current interference in an open session so that the world should also come to know about the main problem area. He said that the delegation should also submit the ‘documents’ to the UN Security Council.

“We will cut off our diplomatic relations with Pakistan if our neighbour will not change its foreign policy towards Afghanistan,” said Abdul Qadir Zazay, head of the international committee in the lower house of the Afghan parliament. Attiqullah Amarkhail – another expert – suggested that the lawmakers should announce a unanimous policy after a detailed discussion in both houses of the parliament.
