Need Orderly Pullout of Troops From Afghanistan: Pakistan
Kabul: On the second day of his three-day visit to the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Monday said that facilitation by Pakistan led to the US-Taliban peace agreement in Doha and subsequent intra-Afghan negotiations.
Qureshi said Pakistan hopes that Afghan parties would work constructively to achieve shared objective of a peaceful, stable and prosperous Afghanistan through an orderly and responsible withdrawal of foreign troops.
Qureshi highlighted Islamabad’s consistent policy to enhance bilateral relations and facilitate Afghan peace process. “We support reconciliation in Afghanistan and progress in peace process, in Istanbul. I look forward to meeting FM Atmar at the Istanbul summit and to hosting him in Pakistan soon after to discuss a way forward post conf,” the foreign minister tweeted.
This comes even as President Ghani on Sunday said that Pakistan has to decide if it wants friendship or enmity with Afghanistan as an unstable Afghanistan can lead to an unstable Pakistan.
