Finaly you did touch the very sensitive nerve in Afghan/Pak relations on one side and pakita inability to exerciseits control over the territory divided by Durand which is in space over the mountains and was a deception for the Pashtun people le on todays Pakistan side. This tribal territory is an automonous territory and is not administrated by Pakistan Govt. Quite on the contrary, Pakistan Govt. under the arrangements made between individual tribes and the Brits pays tributes to the tribal people on a regular basis and in return Pakistan Govt uses the roads which cut across the tribal land and keeps maintanance. Furthermore the transport of passngers and goods is carried out by the transport carriersowned by the tribal people.
