KAKUL: Afghan Chief of General Staff General Sher Muhammad Karimi warned Pakistan Army cadets on Saturday that Afghanistan and Pakistan face threats by non-state actors.

“We see around us, almost every day that the world and our region, especially Afghanistan and Pakistan, face the greatest threats and dangers from individuals and groups that are not affiliated directly with any state. That is precisely why these people are called non-state actors,” the Afghan army chief said at the Kakul passing out parade.

General Karimi is the first Afghan army chief to speak as chief guest at the Pakistan Military Academy Kakul in Abbotabad where a group of six Afghan army cadets are also receiving training.

“This new enemy, which is the common enemy for all of us and of the system in our region, does not recognise boundaries and is not bound by any religious and moral principles,” General Karimi said.

 “Their naked, nefarious designs undermine states and [they] grab power through terror and fear,” the Afghan Army chief said.

“Countering and ultimately defeating this menace and threats effective therefore require sincere and close result-oriented cooperation and coordination between states especially between next door neighbours.”

General Karimi also called for non-interference in each other’s affairs and mutual respect and shared interests among sovereign states.

The Afghan army chief arrived in Pakistan on a two-day visit for talks on bilateral security issues. It is his second visit to Pakistan in nearly four months. He last visited Pakistan in December days after the Taliban attacked an army-run school in Peshawar killing 150 people, including 132 children.

General Karimi met his Pakistani counterpart General Raheel Sharif on Friday and discussed border management and defence cooperation amid growing military-to-military contacts, the military said.

“During the meeting, matters related to peace and stability in the region especially in Afghanistan, Pak-Afghan border management and measures to further enhance defence and training cooperation between both the armies were discussed,” a military statement said.At the passing out parade the Afghan army chief who served as chief guest on the occasion, handed over trophies and sword of honor amongst the outstanding cadets.
