The Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that “Pakistan shares the key concern of the international community regarding the threat posed by the major terrorist groups operating from Afghanistan especially ISIS-K and Takrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, as well as al-Qaeda ETIM and IMU.”

He made the remarks at the 77th United Nation General Assembly.

Sharif’s remarks sparked reactions from the Islamic Emirate and former President Hamid Karzai.

“Some countries, including the United States and Pakistan, expressed concerns … that threat of terrorism still exists in Afghanistan,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement. “These concerns, based on incorrect information and sources, are being brought up as the relevant parties are yet to hand over seat of Afghanistan at the United Nations to its rightful, legal and political owners, the Afghan government.”

Speaking at a gathering in Kabul, the acting foreign minister said that there are “biased circles in the world calling Afghanistan a terrorist haven.”

Former President Karzai said the remarks are not true.

Karzai said in a statement that Afghanistan has been the victim of terrorism and that terrorist sanctuaries have been active under the Pakistani government in the country–and have been used against Afghanistan for decades.

“Representing Afghanistan in the international conference is not possible and this issue makes the situation worse day by day—and this causes some countries who themselves train and grow terrorism to accuse Afghanistan for the chaos in the region,” said Sayed Javad Sijadi.
