KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Hailing efforts at improved bilateral relations, a former Pakistani foreign minister has said peace and development in Afghanistaninfo-icon will not be possible without Pakistaninfo-icon’s support.

Sardar Assef Ahmed Ali, taking part in a discussion in Lahore, urged Pakistan and Afghanistan to conclude an agreement to promote long-term cooperation in diverse areas including trade.

At the discussion was organised by the Citizen Media Commission, he said recent regional developments were important, according to a report in a Pakistani newspaper, the Express Tribune.

Kabul also desired better relations with Islamabad by removing misunderstandings, analyst Aimal Khan said, adding the Afghan government had noted Pakistan’s reservations regarding India’s growing presence there.

The speakers urged Pakistan to support a democratic and strong government in Afghanistan and give up trying, as it had in the past, to install a regime of its choice in Kabul.“We need to expand our circle of friends in region."

The neighbours were urged to evolve a comprehensive joint anti-terrorism mechanism, enhance people-to-people contact and cultural exchanges. Frequent exchanges of visits by media people were also suggested.
