ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday said it has raised the issue of cross-border incursions with the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and the government of Afghanistan.

Responding to some media reports regarding cross border incursions into Pakistan, a spokesman of the Foreign Office said the most recent major cross border attacks took place in Dir and Bajaur Agencies on June 24 and July 12 this year, respectively.

“These cross border attacks were successfully repulsed. Special care was exercised to limit fire only to areas from where the terrorists attacked our border posts,” the spokesman said.

He said the cross border attacks into Pakistan were under active discussion with ISAF, through the “Border Coordination Mechanism” and as part of the ongoing coordination and cooperation between Pakistan and ISAF based on mutual respect and mutual interest.
