ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Friday clarified news items published in a section of press regarding Afghan SIMs and termed the information in this regard as “incorrect and inaccurate.”

PTA said it had proposed an MoU to be signed between the two governments to resolve current and
any future issues related to mobile phone towers and cross border flow of signals. However, despite several reminders, no response was received until now.
It may also be added that investigations regarding Bacha Khan University attack are underway. It is also to mention that Afghan SIMs can call any number in Pakistan from any part of Afghanistan.
