There is no indication that refugees from Afghanistan in Pakistan or along its border have engaged in acts of extremism, the White House said, after Pakistan’s army expressed concern that militants had found safe havens in Afghanistan.

“We’ve seen no indication that Afghan refugees in Pakistan or along that border are guilty of acts of terrorism,” John Kirby, the spokesperson for the White House’s National Security Council, told reporters during a press briefing on Monday, Reuters reported.

The Pakistani military reports that nine soldiers were murdered after militants assaulted an army installation in Pakistan’s southern Balochistan region, and three more died in a gunfight there last week.

“And we’re grateful to Pakistan for the incredible generosity that they have extended to so many Afghans who are just looking for a safe and secure place to be,” Kirby said. “And we’ll continue to work with Pakistan as we have on their legitimate terrorism threats.”

The Pakistan army said last week it had “serious concerns on the safe havens and liberty of action available to TTP in Afghanistan.”

“Such attacks are intolerable and would elicit an effective response from the security forces of Pakistan,” it said.

The Taliban authorities have yet to be commented on the Pakistani army remarks; however, earlier, they denied any allegations that it allows militants to use Afghanistan soil against Pakistan.
