An Afghan lawmaker says Pakistan has violated its border with Afghanistan, illegally advancing about 50 kilometers into the Afghan territory.

The representative of the eastern province of Paktia in Afghanistan’s parliament, Mahmoud Khan Soleiman Kheil, made the accusation on Saturday and expressed concern over the continuation of Pakistan’s violation of the Afghan territorial integrity. He called on the Afghan government to take the matter seriously and adopt immediate measures to put an end to Pakistan’s violations. Meanwhile, a group of Afghan lawmakers have accused the government of President Hamid Karzai of negligence against Pakistan’s policies. The Afghan lawmakers urged the government to take serious measures against Islamabad’s meddling and violations. The Pakistani government has not commented on to the accusations of border violation as of yet.
