ISLAMABAD (92 news) – Pakistan has demanded Afghanistan to hand over Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant-Khorasan (ISIS-K) leader Aslam Farooqi, who was arrested by the Afghan authorities on April 5.
According to a statement, the Foreign Office (FO) called in Afghanistan’s ambassador to Pakistan and demanded handing over of the ISIS-K leader.
The FO said that the Afghan ambassador to Pakistan was called to the Foreign Office and conveyed Pakistan’s deep concerns over the activities of this group, which are clearly detrimental to security of Pakistan.
The statement underscored that since Aslam Farooqi was involved in anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan, he should be handed-over to Pakistan for further investigations.
It said that Pakistan’s position in this regard has been regularly shared with the Afghan government and others concerned. It was further underlined that the two sides should coordinate actions against the menace of terrorism, through established mechanisms.
