He said the three nations have acknowledged Pakistan’s sacrifices in the war against terrorism.

Asif also expressed concerns regarding the presence of India in Afghanistan and claimed that the country only invests in the Afghan territories located close to the border line.

According to Asif, the issues has been shared with the Prime Minister and it is expected that the issue will be discussed with the world leaders including President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani in the near future.
