Pakistan : Afghan Cd'A summoned to Foreign Office; strong protest over unprovoked firing at Chaman border.

The Afghan Charge d' Affairs was summoned to the Foreign Office today to lodge Pakistan's strong protest over the unprovoked firing by the Afghan forces in Chaman area, which has resulted in the martyrdom of several Pakistani citizens and injuries a number of people, including women and children.

The Afghan Charge d' Affairs was conveyed that Pakistani authorities were undertaking the population census and this information had been shared with Afghan government earlier. The unprovoked firing from the Afghan side not only led to the loss of precious lives and injured many, but has also disrupted the census in areas on the Pakistan side of the border and caused damage to properties.

We urge the Afghan government to take immediate steps to bring an end the unprovoked firing from the Afghan side. Action should also be taken against those who are responsible for this violation.
