"There was no terrorism in Pakistan before the Afghan war and our target is to take Pakistan to the pre-war peaceful era", Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) DG Maj-Gen Asif Ghafoor said during an interview to a private news channel. "The issues at the border can be improved through better coordination", he said.

Gen. Ghafoor further added that there would be significant improvement if the border management work is completed by next year, emphasizing that both countries have take some needed measures. "Pakistan, with significantly less resources achieved what the security forces in Afghanistan couldn't with all of their resources", he said.

Speaking during a seminar titled Contours of Security Environment of Pakistan, Khan said the U.S. was using Pakistan as a "scapegoat" for its failures in war-torn Afghanistan. "And we need them to address these sanctuaries in order for us to be able to be enabled to succeed in Afghanistan". We would urge the Foreign Office to convene a meeting of Pakistani Ambassadors in important capitals where they should be comprehensively briefed on different aspects of the issue so that they are properly equipped to safeguard interests of the country.

Pakistan, he said, had been facing challenges since 1947 as all the hostile powers, especially the perpetual threat of India, worked against it.
