Mohammed Omer Daudzai, Special Representative of President of Afghanistan, called on Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi today.

The Foreign Minister noted the recent high-level visits between the two countries and hoped that these exchanges would help strengthen bilateral cooperation.

The Foreign Minister reiterated that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan was in the best interest of Pakistan. The Foreign Minister emphasized Pakistan’s consistent support for the Afghan peace process. He added that Prime Minister Imran Khan had always stressed that there was no military solution to the Afghan conflict.

The Foreign Minister underlined that the continuing incidents of violence inside Afghanistan served to undermine progress achieved in the Afghan peace process. He further added that the continuation of violence would strengthen “spoilers”, who did not wish to see return of peace in the region.

The Foreign Minister underscored that the Afghan leadership must seize this historic opportunity and workout an inclusive, broad-based and comprehensive political settlement for durable peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region.

The Foreign Minister expressed the hope that the intra-Afghan negotiations would lead to its desired objectives of a sovereign, peaceful and stable Afghanistan.
