    Islamabad, Oct.6 : Pakistan on Thursday warned Afghanistan to behave responsibly in the wake of Kabul signing a strategic partnership agreement with India on Tuesday, at a particularly sensitive time in relations between the two countries.

    "At this defining stage when challenges have multiplied, as have the opportunities, it is our expectation that everyone, especially those in position of authority in Afghanistan, will demonstrate requisite maturity and responsibility," Foreign Office spokeswoman Tehmina Janjua told reporters.

    "This is no time for point-scoring, playing politics or grandstanding," she said in her weekly press briefing.

    Her comments seemed more confrontational than Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's statement Wednesday that Afghanistan and India have the right to maintain bilateral relations as sovereign nations.

    The state-run Associated Press of Pakistan reported his comments.

    The Indo-Afghan accord outlined areas of common concern including trade, economic expansion, education, security and politics. It was the first of its kind between Afghanistan and any other country.

    However, Afghan President Hamid Karzai tried to assuage concern over the pact Wednesday, saying it was not intended as an aggressive move against Pakistan.

    He said the agreement simply made official years of close ties between India and Afghanistan's post-Taliban government.

    "Pakistan is a twin brother. India is a great friend. The agreement that we signed yesterday (Tuesday) with our friend will not affect our brother," Karzai had said.

    Pakistan and India have fought three major wars, while ties between Pakistan and Afghanistan have also been rocky.

    Many Pakistani officials view Karzai as being too close to India, as he attended university there in his youth.

    Pakistan which could not control its own territories should not attempt to warn any country's independent foreign policy. People of Afghanistan, do not be afraid of Pakistan who is going to disintegrate soon, the whole world is with you in your fight with the fanatics. Pakistan, like the Kauravas in the Mahabharata will be defeated for their evil deeds.
