Kabul, Islamabad urged to defuse tension for peace sake

Kabul, Islamabad urged to defuse tension for peace sake

Sep 17, 2016 - 11:31

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Peace in the region is threatened by lingering mistrust between Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) senior minister has warned.

Sikandar Hayat Sherpao, provincial chairman of the Qaumi Watan Party, expressed serious concern over escalating tensions between the neighbours.

In a statement on Friday, Sherpao urged Kabulinfo-icon and Islamabad to quickly resolve their issues as strained ties would negatively contribute toward peace and stability in both countries.

Pakhtuns had enormously suffered on both sides of the border for many decades and they had rendered unforgettable sacrifices in the war against terrorism, he noted.

Sherpao said the governments of Afghanistan and Pakistan should realise the delicacy of the situation and evolve a concrete diplomatic and political mechanism to strengthen socio-economic ties.

He said that cordial relations were a prerequisite for regional peace and stability. QWP would continue to raise its voice for the rights of Pakhtuns living in Pakistan and Afghanistan, he promised.
