Pakistan helping terror groups :NATO
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) has reprimanded Islamabad for allowing terror groups to operate from safe havens in Pakistan and launch cross-border attacks in Afghanistan.
At a meeting in Brussels yesterday, NATO asked Islamabad to close terrorist sanctuaries in Pakistan and to work to prevent terrorist financial flows and cross-border attacks.
NATO said the grouping echoes Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s call on regional actors to play a significant role in peace and stabilisation in Afghanistan. The grouping has also called upon Iran and Russia to contribute to regional stability by fully supporting an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process.
