`Durand Line an internationally recognised boundary`
Washington: Day after Kabul`s strong objection to US remarks on Durand Line, the boundary between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the US has insisted that for Washington, the line continues to be an internationally recognised boundary between the two countries.
"Our policy on this has not changed. It was correctly stated by Ambassador Grossman that we see this as the internationally recognized boundary," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said yesterday.
A day earlier, the Afghan government had objected to a remark by Mark Grossman, the Special US Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, given on Durand Line during an interview to an Afghan news channel.
"The status of the Durand Line is a matter of historic importance for the Afghan people. The Afghan government therefore rejects and considers irrelevant any statement by anyone about the legal status of this line," the Afghan Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Afghanistan has said that the boundary line drawn by the Britishers does not have any legitimacy.
