Pakistan queries US stance on Afghan peace process

May 29, 2016 - 10:13

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon’s DefenceMinister Khwaja Asif says the drone attack that killed Talibaninfo-icon’s supreme leader Mullahinfo-icon Akhtar Mansour has raised disturbing questions regarding the US stance on the Afghan peace process.

“But Pakistan will continue all-out efforts to bring durable peace to Afghanistaninfo-icon despite the recent US drone attack,”he told an oath-taking ceremony for newly elected office-bearers of the Sialkot Press Club on Saturday.

The US air raid did not amount to the failure of Pakistan’s foreign policy, the minister insisted, alleging the operation had damaged ongoing efforts for reconciliation in the neighbouring country. 

Pakistan had no objection to the development of the Chabahar project in Iran, offering India easy access to Afghanistan. He asked Washington and Kabulinfo-icon to show sincerity in establishing durable peace in Afghanistan.

Senior Pakistani Taliban leaders were hiding in Afghanistan, but international powers, including the US, refused to take action against them, the minister lamented. Mullah Fazlullah was hatching conspiracies to destabilise Pakistan with the help of India, he alleged.
