Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday (April 26) in an official statement said that Pakistan would not be a party to any internal conflict in neighbouring Afghanistan as Afghans will themselves decide upon the future of their country.
“Afghanistan conflict has brought great suffering for both Afghanistan and Pakistan over the last 40 years. Now, after a long wait, the Afghanistan Peace Process presents a historic opportunity for peace in the region and Pakistan is fully supporting the process including the next logical step of Intra Afghan Dialogue wherein Afghans will themselves decide upon the future of their country”, Prime Minister Khan said.
“The so-called offensives are condemnable and will undermine the peace process. It is not right to seek an edge in dialogue through coercion.” “Pakistan will make all diplomatic and security efforts to make the peace process a success.”
Last month, Afghanistan recalled its ambassador from Islamabad after Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statements that the Afghan Taliban wanted to meet him but the government in Kabul protested so he did not meet them.
