The Office of the Former President in a statement said Hamid Karzai is deeply concerned over the US financial assistance to Pakistan for fencing the Durand Line.
The statement further added that the former President strongly condemns the move and call it it a violation of our rights and sovereignty.
He said “The US funding to Pakistan for fencing the Durand line is helping Pakistan’s policy of separating Afghans on both sides of the Durand Line.
Karzai further added that the Durand line was imposed by the British colonial rule which the Afghans have not and will never accept.
Pakistan started work on fencing the line in June last year, covering the areas which according to the Pakistani authorities are the most prone in terms of the movement of the militants.
Major General Nauman Zakaria, the commander for the South Waziristan tribal region had earlier told reporters that no “terrorist” will be able to use Afghan or Pakistani soil to launch cross-border attacks after the fencing is completed.
