A statement of the Indian ministry of external affairs states that “It is not for Pakistan to decide as to what role another country has in regional or global affairs. Pakistan also cannot decide on behalf of an independent and sovereign country Afghanistan and dictate them as to how to conduct their foreign policy. Pakistan should first and foremost introspect its own role and responsibility in the precarious situation in Afghanistan; put an end to all kind of support to cross border terrorism from territories under Pakistan’s control, and join international efforts to bring inclusive peace to Afghanistan.”

This comes after, Mohammad Faisal, spokesperson for Pakistan’s Foreign Office, in a weekly briefing on Thursday remarked that “India has no role in Afghanistan”.

Faisal’s remarks contradict Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s earlier statement in which he acknowledged that India had stakes in Afghanistan and its cooperation was necessary for the peace process.

“Some meetings have taken place (among key stakeholders) for establishment of peace in Afghanistan. India also has stakes in Afghanistan and its cooperation will also be needed,” Qureshi said last month.

India has been a key stakeholder in the peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan and has committed aid worth USD 3 billion to the war-ravaged country.

“In our view, intra-Afghan dialogue is crucial for success and sustainability of peace process in Afghanistan.

Pakistan will continue to support and facilitate Afghan peace process in good faith and as part of a shared responsibility,” Faisal added in the same briefing.
