Pakistan wants durable peace in Afghanistan: PM

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Tuesday said that Pakistan had suffered massively due to instability in Afghanistan, but it was committed for a peaceful resolution of the Afghan issue.

Pakistan was more committed than any other country in the region for peaceful resolution of the Afghan issue, which should be Afghan-led and Afghan-owned, he told a group of media representatives from international outlets during an interview.

The prime minister reiterated that Pakistan was open to close cooperation as Pak-Afghan ties were decades old and could not be defined on the basis of one issue.

The issue of terrorism, of course, was an issue of concern for Pakistan as it had done most in addressing it, he added. “We had defeated it.”

He asked the media persons to visit Miran Shah and saw for themselves how Pakistan’s military cleared the area by offering great sacrifices in the war against terror. – APP
