EU gives a strong response over latest developments between Pakistan and Afghanistan

BRUSSELS: The European Union has welcomed the recent visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to Kabul and said that many of Afghanistan's problems can be resolved with Pakistan's cooperation.

These views were expressed by EU officials in a briefing about the Afghan Donor Conference, which is scheduled in Geneva on November 23 and 24. The event will take place in collaboration with the United Nations and Finland.

The EU officials said there are many aspects of Afghanistan that are locked but Pakistan has the keys to most of them.

The Afghan peace process is "complex and difficult", they said.

Violence inside Afghanistan has escalated over the last five years even after the Doha Accords.
