Kabulinfo-icon (Pajhwok): US Special Envoy on Afghanistaninfo-icon Zalmay Khalilzad on Friday reached Islamabad on two-day official visit, a media report said.

Pakistaninfo-icon’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi met and assured him that Islamabad would continue to sincerely play the role of a facilitator in the Afghan peace process.

The foreign minister also noted that peace in Afghanistan was imperative for peace and stability in the region and reiterated Pakistan’s stance that there was no military solution to the Afghan conflict.

“Pakistan hopes that US-Afghan talks will soon resume as peace in the region depends upon stability in Afghanistan,” said Qureshi.

Later in the day, Khalilzad along with the US envoy also called on army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.

“Regional security situation with particular reference to ongoing Afg recon [Afghan reconciliation] process was discussed [during the meeting],” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the military’s media wing, said in a statement.
