Afghanistan has alleged that Afghan Taliban and its ally Haqqani network continue to maintain sanctuaries in Pakistani territory from where they are sustaining insurgency in Afghanistan, Dawn reported on Thursday.
Mutual mistrust between Islamabad and Kabul is also impeding progress towards the settlement of the Afghan dispute. There have been mediation efforts by the US and China to resolve the differences between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The two have reached several agreements for managing their relationship crisis, but have been failing to get out of the vicious cycle of distrust.
A Congressional delegation that visited Pakistan and Afghanistan last month had mediated an agreement between Pakistan and Afghanistan for conducting “coordinated, complementary” security operations against terrorist groups on their respective sides of the shared border.
