Afghanistan: Political settlement only viable option

Afghanistan: Political settlement only viable option

Dec 20, 2017 - 08:50

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon believes that a political settlement, owned and led by Afghans, is the only viable option to end the conflict in the neighbouring country.

“Pakistan’s security forces have undertaken indiscriminate and effective counter-terrorism operations against terrorism and extremism,” the Foreign Office said.

As a result of the comprehensive operations, Pakistan had become a more stable and peaceful country, the foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement on Tuesday.

The success against terrorism had come at a tremendous cost of blood and treasure, courageously braced by the people of Pakistan, it said.

“Pakistan’s efforts and sincere proposals for effective border management to prevent the movement of militants and return of Afghan refugees are yet to make any headway.

“On the other hand, a malicious campaign is under-way to undo Pakistan’s achievements in the war against terrorism,” it said, rejecting US President Donald Trump’s latest tirade.

A day earlier, in its new national security strategy, the US pressed Pakistan to intensify action against militant groups operating on its soil.

The Foreign Office responded the "unsubstantiated" and "unfounded" allegations were contrary to ground realities. It reaffirmed Pakistan's commitment to counterterrorism efforts.

Pakistan had been at the forefront in the fight against terrorism and its cooperation resulted in the core of Al Qaeda being "decimated" from the region, the statement added.
