Pakistan responds over the Afghanistan peace process new developments
NEW YORK - Pakistan has welcomed the recent efforts to re-energize the peace process in Afghanistan.
In a statement submitted to the UN Security Council, Pakistan's Permanent Representative to the world body Munir Akram, however, warned against spoilers' attempts to subvert the peace negotiations and prevent a political settlement in the strife-torn country.
The Pakistani envoy called on all sides to work towards reduction of violence as it will strengthen the hands of 'spoilers', both within and outside Afghanistan.
"We must guard against those who desire to frustrate a peaceful settlement on the pretext of safeguarding democracy and human rights and to continue to use Afghan territory against its neighbours," he maintained.
