Kabul: Afghanistan`s national security
adviser has called on the Pakistani government to "take
serious measures" against Islamist groups launching attacks on
Afghan targets from secure havens inside Pakistan.
Rangin Dadfar Spanta said Afghanistan had
"tremendous evidence" that Pakistani authorities allowed
Al-Qaeda and other terror organisations to operate on the
country`s soil and had presented it to Islamabad "many times".
"It is not a particular secret that the terrorists
have sanctuaries in Pakistan, that they have training centres,
that they have the possibility to come to Afghanistan, attack
us and go back," said Spanta.

Pakistan had failed to act against the groups based
in Pakistan`s tribal areas on the Afghan border, he told AFP
in an interview.
