Two FC soldiers martyred in attack at Afghanistan border

The attack was carried out from the Khost province of Afghanistan on a border post in Laka Tika area of Lower Kurram Agency, officials of the political administration in Kurram Agency said.

According to a statement issued here by then Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the FC KP troops were carrying out routine surveillance along the Pak-Afghan border for plugging of gaps and making necessary preparations for starting fencing in that area.

Two Pakistani soldiers were martyred in cross-border fire from Afghanistan while working on a fence meant to cover almost the entire disputed 2,500km border separating the countries, the Pakistan Army said Sunday.

At least two Afghan border security personnel were killed and several others were wounded in the Pakistan initiated attacks.

In response to the announcements, scores of armed tribesmen from Bangash and other tribes started assembling to support the security personnel, they added. Soon after the attack, announcements were made through mosques' loudspeakers in various villages, situated along the Pak-Afghan border.

However, Kono warned there would be "no true improvement of Japan-China relations without stability in the East China Sea". Abe, who is due to meet with Trump in Florida on Tuesday to discuss North Korea, may also meet with Wang.

Several Afghan soldiers including a policeman and a local tribesman were killed in the ongoing clashes with Pakistan's paramilitary Frontier Corps near the disputed border Durand Line on Saturday. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation".

Kurram Agency is one of the most sensitive tribal areas of Pakistan as it shares the border with three Afghan provinces.

Initially, Afghan National Police interim chief Colonel Abdul Hanan told Anadolu Agency that two Pakistani troops were arrested during the clash.

Islamabad rejects the accusation, countering that Islamist militants targeting Pakistani forces and civilians reside on the Afghan side of the border.
