Kabul: Promises of reconciliation efforts notwithstanding, Pakistan has entered into a declared war against Afghanistan, media reports here cited a top Kabul minister as having said. Acting Defence Minister Masoom Stanekzai blamed Pakistan for sheltering top Taliban militants, who have repeatedly attacked Afghanistan, TOLO News reported on Wednesday.
