Senator Jumaddin Gianwal told Tuesday’s session said Pakistaninfo-icon was currently fencing and digging trenches from Kandahar to Paktia provinces along the Durand Line. He stressed the government should not remain silent on issue.

Shir Mohammad Akhundzada from southern Helmand province said the government had claimed stopping the fencing and ditching, which continued in different parts of the border.

“The government should clarify if it has agreed with Pakistan on this, otherwise why it is silent and doesn’t express a stance about the apparent and brazen aggression of Pakistan.”

He asked government authorities to raise their voice  because Durand Line was part of Afghanistan’s soil and no one could fence it or dig trenches along it.

Meshran Jirgainfo-icon chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar also called the Durand Line as part of Afghanistan, stressing no one had the right to fence or ditch the line. He asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to use diplomatic channels for solution to the issue.
