Launching a military operation against the Pakistani Taliban will create more problems for Afghanistan, Afghan military expert General Atiqullah Amarkhil told TOLOnews on Thursday.
"If Pakistan really wants to launch an operation against terrorist networks, it should include all terrorist groups, not only against Pakistani Taliban. Otherwise it will create more threats for Afghanistan," Amarkhil said.
His statement came after the United States Defense Minister Leone Pannetta said yesterday that a top US military official will discuss Pakistan's military operation against the insurgent groups in Pakistan to combat cross-border shelling into Afghanistan.
Another Afghan military expert, Jawed Kohistani, alleges that Pakistan is trying to gain US financial aid by launching this operation.
Afghanistan has repeatedly asked Pakistani officials to eradicate terrorist groups inside its soil and help the international community and Afghanistan in a honest manner in fighting insurgency in the region.
Yesterday, in a statement issued by the President's Office, President Karzai has urged his Pakistani counterpart to stop the rocket attacks which were allegedly fired by Pakistani Army, adding that the continuation of attacks would harm the relations between the two countries.
Meanwhile, Isaf has said that a coordination center will be formed in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in Torkhan to solve the issues between the two countries. The center will be comprised of Afghan and Pakistan military generals and Isaf.
