Foreign Office reaction
Meanwhile, foreign office on Monday noted with serious concern the recent tweets.

According to her, Pakistan wishes to maintain close and cordial relations with Afghanistan.
However these relations based on the principles of non-intervention and non-interference.
She urged the Afghan side to work together for the common objective of peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region.
