Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan concerning remarks by US Government Officials on the status of Durand Line

OCT 24.2012

KABUL-The Ministry of Foreign Affairs once again reaffirms the historic importance of the Durand Line for the Afghan people and reiterates its long-standing position that only the Afghan nation can determine its status. US policy concerning the recognition of Durand Line is not a new development and has no bearing on the views of the Afghan people or the policy of the Government of Afghanistan on this issue.
