Talking to the media persons in Islamabad on Thursday, he said our hearts are big but we might have to close the Chaman border with Afghanistan for few days.

The interior minister said Pakistan desires peace and stability in Afghanistan. He said peace in Afghanistan is important for peace in Pakistan.
Responding to a question, Sheikh Rasheed said it is not time for a long march rather we have to sit together to take forward the country and deal with the challenges.
