Pakistan, Afghanistan to hold tribal jirgas
font size    

Pakistan and Afghanistan are in touch to sort out modalities for holding of tribal jirgas as agreed between President Pervez Musharraf and his Afghan counterpart during their meeting in Washington, Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasneem Aslam told a weekly news briefing on Monday.

Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri is expected to visit Kabul in the first half of next month to exchange views with his Afghan counterpart on the subject, she said.

Aslam said Pakistan is doing everything possible to ensure that its territory is not used for violence in Afghanistan.

"Pakistan has made a number of suggestions including fencing of the international border," she said.

She said Pakistan has also proposed introduction of restrictions and checks on movements and requirement of documentation on points where such movement should be allowed.

"There have been interactions with Afghan side on various levels including the highest level," she added.

"Pakistan however feels that challenges in Afghanistan are compounded by lack of progress in reconstruction, poppy cultivation, gun running, corruption and role of war lords," she said.

"There is also need for reconciliation in Afghanistan and early relocation of Afghan refugees living close to Afghan border," she said.
