Kabul, Dushanbe Vow to Boost Security Cooperation

Kabul, Dushanbe Vow to Boost Security Cooperation

KABUL - Afghanistan and Tajikistan have agreed to step up cooperation on safeguarding their common border and combating terrorism, says a media report.
During his two-day visit to the neighbouring country, National Directorate of Security head Ahmad Zia Saraj met Saimumin Yatimov, chairman of Tajikistan’s State Committee for National Security.
Tajikistan’s state-run news agency Khovar reported the security bosses also pledged to deepen cooperation on battling extremism and trafficking in drugs and weapons.
While discussed the situation in the region, they noted destabilisation posed a common threat to the neighbourhood.
"Both sides expressed concerns over the fact that Afghanistan has turned into a battlefield due to interference from subversive forces,” the new agency said.
They also focused the threat posed by terrorist groups, including Al-Qaeda, Islamic State, Islamic Renaissance Party, Ansorulloh, Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement, Turkistan Islamic Movement and others. (Pajhwok)
