KABUL: National Security Adviser (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib on Saturday denied reports indicating Pakistan has stopped official contact with him. Addressing a joint security official’s press conference in Kabul on Saturday, NSA Mohib stated that he has not received any official statement from Pakistan in this respect. “There has been some assertions about me from an anonymous and unnamed address, which is not the official position of Pakistan. If Pakistan says anything officially, the Afghan government will announce its position,” said NSA Mohib.
NSA’s comments come a day after VOA reported that Pakistan has officially stopped all contact with him after what Pakistan called his “abusive outburst” against Islamabad.
Pakistan has conveyed to the leadership in Afghanistan it will no longer conduct official business with Kabul’s top national security chief because of his recent “abusive outburst” against Islamabad, VOA reported citing officials and diplomatic sources.
In a public speech earlier this month in eastern Nangarhar province, which borders Pakistan, NSA Mohib blamed Pakistan for harboring terrorists.
