FB Ali recognizes the complexities involved in stabilizing the Federally Administered Tribal Areas.

In the U.S. media, this problem is typically over-simplified as "securing the border."

The boundary in question is the Durand Line that the two neighbors have NOT agreed upon.

Which means that each neighbor views military operations by the other along the Durand Line with suspicion. Attempts to create customs and border posts add to the tension.
