Afghanistan Opposing fencing on Border

The Government of Afghanistan is not interested to contribute to this project. Afghan Govt. don't even accept the Pak-Afghan border by saying that 'We don't recognize the border line which was drawn by Britishers in the 20th century'. 

On the other hand, Pakistan rejects the Afghan narrative. In order to protect the territorial integrity, the Pakistani Govt. is trying to secure the border region along with Afghanistan.

As of today, 802 Km of Pak-Afghan border fencing has been completed while its total length is Approximately 2600 km. In addition with Fencing, Pakistan Army is building 843 forts along with border and has deployed the latest surveillance and resonance systems.
