US concerned over tension at Torkham border   

WASHINGTON: The United States of America has expressed concerns over the recent clashes at the Torkham border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

In a daily briefing, US State Department Spokesman John Kirby, said, “We know – we’ve gotten reports that casualties have been taken on both sides. We’re also concerned about reports of the presence of heavy weapons at the border.”

The spokesman went on to say we continue to encourage the governments of both Pakistan and Afghanistan to resolve their disagreements at the crossing point and to de-escalate tensions.

“We think good relations between the two countries are key to the stability to the region,” Kirby added.
