He accused India of exploiting the security situation on border with Afghanistan and added that terrorists could move across borders because of no effective border management systems in place there.

“This is exploited by the anti-Pakistan intelligence agencies such as RAW,” he said.

The Pakistan army chief said a stable Afghanistan is a guarantee to a peaceful and stable region and peace in the war-ravaged country could be achieved through a comprehensive and coordinated strategy.

“Route to a peaceful and prosperous region runs through a stable Afghanistan, which is achievable through comprehensive and coordinated approach,” he said.
