According to local media report, the request was made by Kabul after the last meeting of Tripartite Commission held on August 12 in Bagram, Afghanistan, after the body comprising representatives from U.S., Pakistan and Afghanistan failed to come up with unanimous recommendations for the resolution of border issue.
The Nation daily reported today that Afghanistan had acquired from London a copy of the original agreement of 1893 in which Great Britain and Afghanistan had agreed on the Durand Line as the border between British India and Afghanistan. Kabul has also demanded that the Tripartite Commission be empowered to resolve the border dispute in line with the Kabul demand to re-demarcate the Durand Line. ``Kabul has been insistent on the re-demarcation of Durand Line in last two meetings of the Tripartite Commission despite Pakistan's rejection of the same on the ground that this issue is a closed chapter now,'' the newspaper quoted highly placed diplomatic sources as saying.
