PM Imran Khan expresses disappointment over allegations levelled against Pakistan from Afghan side
Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed disappointment over the allegations against Pakistan from the Afghan side. He said to blame Pakistan for what is happening in Afghanistan is extremely unfair.
He expressed these views while addressing the conference in Tashkent on Friday.
He said no country has tried harder to get the Taliban on the dialogue table than Pakistan. He said we have made every effort to get the Taliban on the dialogue table and have a peaceful settlement.
He said that regional peace and stability is vital for enhanced trade and economic cooperation in the region.
The prime minister said the Afghan situation and unresolved disputes are the key challenges to peace and stability in the region.
He said Afghanistan is the natural land bridge between Central Asia and South Asia, and peace in Afghanistan is the most critical factor for regional connectivity.
Imran Khan said Pakistan’s foremost priority is the stability in Afghanistan as it directly affects us. He said Pakistan will continue to support all initiatives for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan. He said we encourage all the neighbours and international stakeholders for their positive roles for a political settlement in Afghanistan.
The prime minister categorically stated that Pakistan is a partner in peace.
