Pakhtuns desire peace in region, says ANP leader

Pakhtuns desire peace in region, says ANP leader

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakhtuns want peace and prosperity in Pakistaninfo-icon and Afghanistaninfo-icon, says a senior leader of the Awami National Party (ANP).

If the current situation in Pakistan and Afghanistan was not controlled, a third worldinfo-icon war could not be ruled out, the ANP central general secretary warned.

Mian Iftikhar Hussain, addressing a news conference in the border town of Landikotal, urged the neighbours to amend their foreign policies to restore peace in the region.

Supporters of mujahideeninfo-icon are now branding them as terrorists, remarked the former information minister of northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The United States had created Daesh, or the so-called Islamic State, to vanquish the Talibaninfo-icon and achieve its interests in Pakistan and Afghanistan, he alleged.

Mian Iftikhar said: “Russia, China and the US are fighting in Afghanistan, with Pakhtuns on both sides of the Durand Lineinfo-icon becoming victims of their war.”

Pakistan was their motherland and Afghanistan was the land of their forefathers, the ex-minister said, underscoring Pakhtuns’ desire for peace and prosperity in both countries.

He slammed restrictions on the Torkham border imposed by Islamabad, saying the harsh measures had crippled trade between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

If Afghanistan found an alternative route to India and Central Asia, Pakistani markets would collapse, Iftikhar said, signaling ANP’s willingness to help defuse Kabulinfo-icon-Islamabad tensions.
