Pakistan renews support for Afghanistan’s peace quest
“Pakistan welcomes the peace agreement signed between the government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and Hezb-i-Islami,” the Foreign Office in Islamabad said.
In a statement, the ministry said Pakistan had consistently emphasised there was no military solution to the conflict in Afghanistan. A politically-negotiated settlement … is the most viable option for bringing lasting peace and stability to Afghanistan.”
The successful conclusion of the peace deal between the Afghan government and HIA was an encouraging development, it said.
