‘Imran Khan’s appeal to reduce violence can transform the region’

US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad says he “greatly appreciates” Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement on Afghanistan.

Zalmay took to Twitter to share PM Khan’s statement, saying that the premier’s strategy against violence would give Pakistan a “leading role.”

On April 25, PM Khan said the Afghanistan conflict has brought great suffering for both Afghanistan and Pakistan over the last 40 years. “Now, after a long wait, the Afghanistan Peace Process presents a historic opportunity for peace in the region and Pakistan is fully supporting the process including the next logical step of Intra Afghan Dialogue wherein Afghans will themselves decide upon the future of their country,” he said.

He said Pakistan is highly dismayed by the surge of violence in Afghanistan from all sides. “The so called offensives are condemnable and will undermine the peace process. It is not right to seek an edge in dialogue through coercion,” he said.

The premier said Pakistan implores all parties to recognise the importance of the moment and seize it. “Pakistan has committed all diplomatic and security capital to success of the peace process. Pakistan will not be party to any internal conflict in Afghanistan anymore.”
