Protesters stress Kabul sever ties with Islamabad

Protesters stress Kabul sever ties with Islamabad

Aug 24, 2015 - 18:00

KABUL (Pajhwok): Thousands of protesters in capital Kabul on Monday have signed a petition urging the government to sever ties with Pakistan.

The protesters condemned what they alleged Pakistan’s aggression towards Afghanistan and asked for UN sanctions on the neighboring country.

Dr. Shukria Seerat, deputy head of the Work and Development Party, told journalist the petition had been signed by more than 13,000 people in their tent that had been erected in the Shar-e-Naw park over the past few days.

The petition had asked all the people to prepare themselves for a war and defence against Pakistani aggression.

Earlier reports said that Pakistan has started shelling bordering areas of Afghanistan and constructing trenches along the Durand Line.

The petition urged the government to cut all diplomatic and non-diplomatic ties with Islamabad and boycott Pakistani products.

Shukria Seerat said Pakistan’s policies of making Afghans bleeding were not acceptable anymore. She said the petition would formally be submitted to the UN tomorrow.

She said the UN should also put sanctions on the neighboring country to stop it from sponsoring terror.

She asked the government to invest more on security forces and introduce defence minister without any delay.
