New York, Oct.1 (ANI): Pakistan, Prime Nawaz Sharif said on Wednesday, is ready to help promote peace, stability in Afghanistan.
Delivering his annual address at the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), he said that Pakistan will persist in the endeavour to help resume the dialogue process and promote peace and stability in Afghanistan.
“We can, however, do so only if we receive the required cooperation from the Afghan government. Tensions between Afghanistan and Pakistan are in neither country’s interests,” Sharif stated further.
At the same time, he also said that relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have recently undergone a positive transformation after the advent of the national unity government in Kabul.
“Pakistan made strenuous efforts to facilitate the process of Afghan reconciliation. Dialogue did open between the Afghan Government and the Taliban, which was an unprecedented first. But it was unfortunate that certain developments stalled the process. Thereafter, militant attacks intensified, which we unequivocally condemn,” he stressed.
Pakistan, he said, also greatly appreciates China’s proactive role in promoting peace and prosperity in Afghanistan and in the region overall. (ANI)
