Taliban spokesperson lauds PM Imran Khan’s efforts for peace in Afghanistan

Kabul (Web Desk): Taliban Spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid on Tuesday admired Prime Minister Imran Khan's efforts for peace, stability and inclusive government in Afghanistan.

Addressing a news conference in Kabul on Tuesday, he said we do not see the positive statements of Prime Minister Imran Khan as interference in the internal matters of Afghanistan.

“Pakistan, Qatar and China are playing active role for stability in Afghanistan,” he said, adding that they will welcome the role of countries which are interested to work with good intent for peace and stability in Afghanistan.

He confirmed that Pakistan and some other countries have political contacts with Afghanistan.

Zabiullah Mujahid said they are heading towards an inclusive government. He added that more people from different ethnicities including Hazaras, technocrats and educated people have been inducted in the interim cabinet.

The Taliban spokesperson said the cabinet formation is not complete yet and more people will also be included in it.

Responding to a question, the spokesperson expressed the confidence that economic activities will soon resume in the country.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi reaffirmed Pakistan’s desire for the establishment of an inclusive government in Afghanistan.

During a meeting with the United Nations (UN) press representatives in New York, he stressed that the international community should not abandon Afghanistan.

FM Qureshi said a peaceful Afghanistan will be a cause of stability for the whole region. He said Pakistan extended full assistance in the evacuation of foreign nationals from Afghanistan.

The foreign minister said despite limited resources, Pakistan has been hosting three million Afghan refugees over the last four decades.
