Pakistan today summoned Afghan Charge d'affaires and strongly condemned a cross border terror attack at a border check post that killed two soldiers.
Armed militants from Afghanistan yesterday killed two Pakistani military personnel in Bajaur tribal region.
"Afghan CDA (charge de affairs) was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a strong protest was lodged with the Afghan government over this incident," the Foreign Office said.
It said Pakistan has witnessed a surge in terror attacks on its security forces deployed along the Pak-Afghan border.
"These cross border terrorist attacks on Pakistani forces confirm the presence of a large number of terrorists in the increasingly ungoverned spaces in Afghanistan.
"The forces supporting these acts of terrorism against Pakistan who have been allowed to use the Afghan soil are a serious threat to peace and stability in Afghanistan, and the region," the FO said.
Pakistan calls upon Afghanistan to take immediate action against the terrorists and terror groups finding sanctuaries in Afghanistan to target Pakistani security forces, it said.
