The Pakistani Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Monday urged the newly appointed interior minister in Afghanistan to avoid trivialising threat posed by the so-called Islamic State (IS).
“Trivialising the threat of ISIS is to live in cuckooland, the new Afghan interior minister needs a reality check. Decide if you want Pakistan as a partner or as a scapegoat for your own govt’s failures. Mr. Minister! Time to get real and give up phantom thoughts from a paranoid mind,” he tweeted.

The remarks come as president Ghani has recently nominated Amrullah Saleh as acting interior minister of Afghanistan.
President Ghani appointed newly interior and Defense ministers as US president Donald Trump plans to withdraw 7000 troops from Afghanistan.
