The two officials discussed Khalilzad’s recent meetings in the region relating to the Afghan peace process. The peace process is a joint responsibility, said Qureshi, who assured Khalilzad of Pakistan’s continued efforts to facilitate the process.
We will continue our efforts, he said. Khalilzad responded by saying the US values Pakistan’s efforts to facilitate peace in the neighbouring country.
