Pakistan on Thursday reiterated its call on neighboring Afghanistan to eliminate "hideouts of the Pakistani militants on the Afghan side of the border."
Security officials insist that Pakistani Taliban leaders, who have fled the country as the result of military operations, now operate from the Afghan border regions.
On Tuesday, the military said a group of 90 to 100 militants from Afghanistan's Khost and Paktika province attacked a border post in North Waziristan and killed four paramilitary troops.
The Foreign Ministry Wednesday summoned the Afghan charge d' affaires and a protest was lodged on the attack. The spokeswoman told reporters in Islamabad on Thursday that Pakistan had lodged a formal protest after the attack from Afghanistan into Pakistani territory from across the international border.
