He said Afghanistan was committed to its agreements with Pakistaninfo-icon and Kabul was also waiting for commitment from its neighbor.

“Afghanistan prefers and prioritizes peace but the Afghan government will not stop building pressure on groups involved in disrupting peace of the country,” he added.
