The increase in tensions between the Taliban group’s relations with Pakistan and the reprimand of this country’s ambassador in Kabul

The increase in tensions between the Taliban group’s relations with Pakistan and the reprimand of this country’s ambassador in Kabul

Relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have deteriorated with Islamabad claiming that some Taliban leaders support the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Taliban group.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan announced in a statement on Tuesday that it has great respect for the people of Afghanistan, but considers the Taliban’s support for the insurgents who have killed Pakistanis to be a sign of “short-sightedness” on the part of the Taliban.

This statement calls for the Taliban to reconsider this approach and openly support Pakistan.

Last night, Pakistan carried out airstrikes on areas in Paktia and Khost, Afghanistan. Pakistani authorities claim that the target of these attacks was Abdullah Shah, the commander of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan. In response to these attacks, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan summoned Abdul Rahman Nizami, the Pakistani ambassador in Kabul.

This diplomatic conflict takes place after Pakistan had previously announced that it was carrying out “anti-terrorist operations” based on information obtained in the border areas of Afghanistan.

These tensions can negatively affect the fragile peace process in Afghanistan as well as the relations between the two neighboring countries.
