China upbeat about resolution of Pak-Afghan border crisis


As the situation remains tense on the Pak-Afghan border following Afghan troops’ aggression and Pakistani forces’ retaliatory response, China hoped the both governments in Islamabad and Kabul “would properly” address the border issue.

“As a close neighbour to both Pakistan and Afghanistan, the Chinese side hops that the two sides will properly address the relevant issue,” remarked Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang on Monday while responding to a question during a regular press briefing.
On Sunday, in retaliatory fire to Afghan army’s Friday’s aggression on the border town of Chaman, Pakistani forces killed 50 Afghan soldiers and border security personnel, injured more than 100 troops and destroyed five Afghan check posts.

The spokesperson also hoped that the two neighbouring countries would jointly uphold the peace and stability in the region.
On May 5, 11 people, including women, children and a FC man, were killed and 47 injured when Afghan border forces resorted to ‘unprovoked’ firing at Pakistani troops guarding a census team.
