Afghanistan has cast accusations at Pakistan saying that the attacks on well protected parliamentary building in Kabul on june 23 were carried out by ISI. Afghan government has been repeatedly levelled allegations against Pakistan after every attack since the ISI-NDS cooperation pact.

If NDS has any such proofs regarding Pakistan involvement then they should be shared with Pakistan without any reluctance. The reason behind this is pervasive suspicion and distrust in Afghanistan about Pakistan. This mutual mistrust between both countries could prove perilous to afghan rapproachment process and third force will benefit from it which is not in favour of peace in Afghanistan.

Both sides should avoid proxy wars and blame game to make bilateral relations amicable and cordial. The leaders of both countries should refrain from such statements that may affect bilateral ties.
