US envoy Khalilzad appreciates PM Imran's statement on Afghanistan

Washington (Web Desk): US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad has appreciated Prime Minister Imran Khan's recent statement on Afghanistan.


In a tweet on Friday, the US envoy said that Imran Khan's appeal for reduction of violence and policy against promoting internal conflict in other nations has potential to positively transform the region and give Pakistan a leading role.

In his statement, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Pakistan will not be a part of any internal conflict anymore in neighbouring Afghanistan.

“Pakistan will fully support the dialogue process of Afghanistan. Pakistan will also support the next round of talks,” the statement read.

The Afghan conflict brought great suffering for both Afghanistan and Pakistan over the last 40 years and the peace process presented a historic opportunity for peace in the region, the statement added.

The statement emphasised upon the significance of Intra Afghan Dialogue wherein the people of Afghanistan will themselves decide upon the future of their country.

“Pakistan has committed all diplomatic and security capital for the success of the peace process and the country would no longer be a part of any internal conflict in Afghanistan,” PM Imran said in the statement.
