Afghan forces resist Pakistani post in Angor Ada

Apr 11, 2017 - 18:48

SHARANA (Pajhwok): Afghan border forces prevented the Pakistani military from establishing a security post in the Angor Ada area, an official in southeastern province Paktika said on Tuesday.

A security official in Barmal district told Pajhwok Afghan News the Pakistani forces wanted to establish a check post in Angor Ada, a border crossing between the two countries, but they were prevented by the Afghan forces.

“The Pakistani Army had brought all equipment for establishing a check post, however they weren’t allowed by the Afghan border forces,” he said.

He said the Afghan forces resisted the move and both the sides had currently taken positions at their trenches.

Meanwhile, a resident of Barmal district, Mirzaman, said the Pakistani army wanted to establish a security post in Zawaba area on Tuesday morning but they weren’t allowed by the Afghan forces.

He expressed concern over the issue, saying if the issue wasn’t resolved, clashes were likely to erupt between Afghan and Pakistani forces.

However, he said area people were ready to stand behind their security forces in case of need and defend their soil.

Local and security officials in Paktika refused to comment on the issue.

The Pakistani forces last year established a gate and other military installations in Angor Ada area and handed over the facilities to Afghan forces in June, 2016.

Earlier, Barmal district residents had claimed the Pakistani forces had established installations 20 kilometres inside Afghanistaninfo-icon.
