US Special Representative for Afghan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad has praised Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement on Afghanistan. “Greatly appreciate @ImranKhanPTI’s statement on #Afghanistan. His appeal for reduction of violence and policy against promoting internal conflict in other nations has potential to positively transform the region and give #Pakistan a leading role,” Khalilzad tweeted on Friday.

Describing the Afghan peace process a ‘historic opportunity’ for peace in the region, Prime Minister Imran Khan had on Thursday said that Pakistan was fully supporting the process and would not be a party to any internal conflict in Afghanistan anymore. “Afghanistan conflict has brought great suffering for both Afghanistan and Pakistan over the last 40 years. Now, after a long wait, the Afghan 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 had said in a statement issued by the PM Office.

Recently, Kabul has been extremely indignant at what it sees as Islamabad’s ‘interference’ in Afghanistan’s affairs, having recalled its ambassador twice over a statement from Prime Minister Khan regarding a possible interim setup in Afghanistan while a peace is brokered.
