MoD Reacts Against Pakistani Operation Near Afghan Border

Afghanistan Ministry of Defense (MoD) has reacted over Pakistan’s military operation against so-called Islamic State (IS) group in bordering areas with Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s military said it has launched a major operation against so-called Islamic State (IS) in the north-western region along the Afghan border.

A Pakistani spokesman said militants had gained ground inside Afghanistan and had to be stopped from extending their influence.

He said the “Khyber 4” operation, backed by the air force, would focus on the mountainous Rajgal Valley area in Khyber Agency.

Now in reaction, MoD says military operations should be launched in terrorist centers placed in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta under monitoring of U.S. and China.

“Military operations need to be launched in both sides of the Durand Line. Everyone understand the terrorist centers are located in Pakistan; Quetta Council, Peshawar Council and Miranshah Council that are Taliban groups,” said Dawlat Waziri, spokesman of MoD.

Previously, Afghanistan agreed with a proposal to conduct joint raids with neighboring Pakistan along the border, monitored and coordinated by the United States.

However, MoD declares no coordination was made between the two countries.

“The decision was military operations under U.S. and China monitoring, but after that they said Daesh and Taliban are not terrorist groups in Pakistan,” Waziri added.

 The nearly 2,600-kilometer, largely-porous border between Afghanistan and Pakistan is called the Durand Line. Both countries regularly accuse each other of not doing enough on their respective sides to stop terrorist infiltration. The allegations are blamed for deep mutual mistrust and strained bilateral ties.

Officials from the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum (MoMP) say nearly one billion AFN have been invested in small and large mines since the beginning of the 1403 solar year.

The ministry officials said that since then, they have signed small and large contracts, the volume of which reaches one billion AFN.

The officials added that all mining contracts have been signed with domestic companies.

They stated that efforts are underway to attract large investments in the mining sector.

“On a small scale, the total value of all these investments is 500 million AFN. Similarly, the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum has two large-scale contracts this year, one of which is the Jagdalak ruby mine in Kabul and the barite mine in Herat province where the mining contract for this mine had also been signed with a domestic company,” said Homayoun Afghan, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum.

Officials from the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment (ACCI) have stated that there is a good opportunity to invest in the mining sector and interest in investing has increased.

“Especially in the mining sector, there are many developments and the work is good. The mine goes abroad a lot. From 2 billion exports, most of them are minerals, which are not rare, but semi-precious minerals,” said Khanjan Alkozi, a member of the ACCI.

“But in general, foreign and domestic traders are interested in investing in agriculture, production, mines and processing,” he added.

Meanwhile, economic analysts believe that if the Islamic Emirate creates more facilities for private investors, domestic and foreign investments will expand in the country, and along with the increase in government income, employment opportunities will be provided for thousands of citizens.
