The Foreign Secretary summoned the Chargé d’Affaires (Cd’A) of the Afghan Interim Government (AIG) to convey Pakistan’s strong demarche regarding today’s deadly terrorist attack on a security forces’ post in Daraban, Dera Ismail Khan, according to the ministry’s statement.

The attack, claimed by Tehreek-e-Jihad Pakistan, an affiliate of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), resulted in the tragic loss of twenty-three security personnel’s lives, the statement said.

During the meeting, the Cd’A of AIG received Pakistan’s firm demarche, urging the Afghan Interim Government to:

  1. Fully investigate and take stern action against perpetrators of the recent attack;
  2.  Publicly condemn the terrorist incident at the highest level;
  3. Take immediate, verifiable actions against all terrorist groups (including their leadership) and their sanctuaries;
  4.  Apprehend and handover the perpetrators of the attack and the TTP leadership in Afghanistan to the Government of Pakistan and
  5. Take all necessary measures to deny the persistent use of Afghan soil for terrorism against Pakistan.

The recent attack serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing terrorist threat to regional peace and stability. It emphasizes the need for collective action against this menace. Pakistan reiterates its unwavering commitment to combating terrorism and calls for joint efforts to address this common challenge, the statement added.

Prior to this incident, Pakistani authorities had issued a cautionary advisory regarding safety during political elections and rallies due to the recent explosion. This comes as the second explosion in a week, with a previous incident in Balochistan resulting in one officer’s death and several others injured.
