Pakistan condemns the incident that took place this afternoon where 6 Pakistani nationals were killed and 17 were wounded after Afghan Border Forces resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing onto the Civilian population in Chaman.

Such unfortunate incidents are not in keeping with the brotherly ties between the two countries. The Afghan authorities have been informed that recurrence of such incidents must be avoided and strictest possible action must be taken against those responsible.

It remains the responsibility of both sides to protect civilians along the border. The concerned authorities of both countries remain in contact to ensure that there is no further escalation of the situation and recurrence of such incidents is avoided.
