ISLAMABAD – Afghanistan intelligence personnel, the National Directorate of Security (NDS), has been harassing Pakistani diplomats for the ninth consecutive day in |Kabul.
According to diplomatic sources, Afghan intelligence agency officials have been harassing Pakistani diplomats on their way home.
Afghan security officials vehicles, without bearing a registration number plate, hit the vehicles of Pakistan’s embassy in Kabul and harassed the diplomatic officials.
The diplomatic sources maintained that the Afghan intelligence officials followed the Pakistani diplomats and hit their vehicle deliberately which damaged the vehicles of the Pakistani embassy.
Earlier, despite Afghan Foreign Ministry’s assurance to Pakistan that it would sort out the issue of Pakistani diplomats’ harassment in Afghanistan, frequent reports have emerged that Afghanistan intelligence service officials are still harassing Pakistani embassy personnel in Kabul and its sub-missions.
Pakistan has taken up the matter with Afghanistan’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs; however, it appears that foreign ministry officials are helpless in front of the Afghan secret agency as no action could be taken to stop those officials.
Statements to carry out a thorough investigation into the matter are being issued by responsible officials on the one hand, and ‘unstoppable’ harassment on the other depicts dual policy of Afghanistan.
The FO on Sunday summoned the Afghan chargé d’affaires to convey serious concerns over the safety and security of embassy personnel in Kabul and its sub-missions.
