Speaking to the media in Multan, Qureshi said the efforts for the success of the Afghan peace process were a Herculean task. Pakistan, he said, was making efforts to constitute an extensive delegation after February 29 to promote intra-Afghan dialogue.

“It was not an easy task and Pakistan's honest efforts made the process finally successful and result-oriented,” he said.

The foreign minister added Pakistan made the world realise that Afghan peace was only possible through peace talks and not war.

“Pakistan convinced the world to make efforts for a political solution to the Afghan problem through dialogue. It was hard to convince the Taliban for the peace process, but Pakistan made them join the process,” the foreign minister said.

Qureshi said Pakistan played a key role in resumption of the peace process, which had been suspended since US President Trump announced the suspension of the Afghan peace process after the deaths of American soldiers in Afghanistan. Pakistan made positive efforts for an early resumption of dialogue, he added.
