Afghan, Pakistan, US Commanders Review Border Security
Senior military leaders of Afghanistan, Pakistan and the US on Saturday discussed about ways to strengthen its control over the borders to check the movement of insurgents, the army said in a statement.
The meeting held at Rawalpindi, Pakistan was attended by the Isaf Commander Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Afghan Army Chief of Staff General Sher Mohammad Karimi and Pakistan's Army Chief Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, the statement said.
The officials discussed matters of mutual interest with particular emphasis on having a good coordination at the Pakistan-Afghan border and improving the standing operation procedures.
The statement did not give any more details.
Off late, relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan were strained after the cross-border attacks and the claims made by the Afghan Government stating that Pakistani forces have built military check-posts in the Goshta district of eastern Nangarhar province.
The Afghan Government has deployed more security forces in the area and put on alert.
The Afghan forces have destroyed several Pakistani military check-posts inside the Gostha district until now.
Afghanistan and Pakistan have had strained relations since the time Pakistan was formed in 1947, after the British colonial rule in India ended.
