Washington, July 21, 2015 (PANinfo-icon): The United States on Monday applauded the recent role of Pakistaninfo-icon in peace talks between the Talibaninfo-icon and the Afghan Government.

The issue came up for discussion during the meeting of the Special Assistant to Pakistani Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Syed Tariq Fatemi, with the Deputy US Secretary of State, Toney Blinken.

 “Pakistan’s role in facilitating the reconciliation process between Afghan government and the Taliban was lauded by the US side,” said an official statement issued by Embassy of Pakistan after the meeting during which the two officials discussed a wide range of bilateral and regional issues.

 “Fatemi briefed Blinken on the Prime Minister’s consistent policy of outreach to Pakistan’s neighbors and his commitment to maintaining cordial relations with all its neighbors, including Afghanistaninfo-icon and India,” the statement said.

He also apprised Blinken of the steps taken by the Government over the last two years to implement its economic agenda, while highlighting the progress made in achieving economic stability and investor confidence.

The Pak official briefed Blinken about the ongoing law enforcement operations in FATAinfo-icon aimed at securing Pakistani soil from all militants. “He thanked the US for its continued support to Pakistan for its political and economic stability and its efforts to bring regional peace and harmony,” the statement said.
