KABUL, Oct 29: Afghan, Pakistani and US diplomats and military officials paid a joint visit to the Afghan-Pakistani border to ascertain where the disputed boundary should lie, the US army announced on Wednesday.

The officials, under the six-month old Tripartite Commission tasked with resolving problems on the 2,450 kilometre frontier, toured four border posts in eastern Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province on Saturday.

They had visited the area in July to confirm global satellite- determined locations for three other Pakistani border posts on the Pakistani side, according to a US army statement issued from Bagram air base headquarters near Kabul.

“The Commission researched the seven posts in the Khoda Khel pocket region to help settle disputes between the two nations as to the locations of the posts,” it said.

“The Commission agreed to take steps to enhance coordination among Afghan, Pakistan, and US security forces in key areas of the border to combat Taliban and Al Qaeda infiltration and to deny them sanctuary.”—AFP
