font size    

Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Shaukat Sultan said on Wednesday that only the matters relating to the ongoing operations in the border region were discussed in the tripartite meeting of Pakistan, the United States and Afghanistan.

In an interview with a private TV channel, he said that situation inside Afghanistan was not raised in the meeting.

"It is their own political circumstances and we have no concerns," he added.

He said that objectives of the tripartite commission were to keep the doors open for talks and coordination.

Sultan said that Pakistan still wanted to erect fence and to plant mines in border areas so that the border could be sealed effectively.

However, he said that every government had its own stand and no progress, so far, had been made in this connection.

Sultan said that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was going to take over the responsibility from the United States in Afghanistan, therefore, their participation in the talks was essential, adding that they were also partners in the fighting in Afghanistan.
