Pakistan and China push for peace in Afghanistan

Qureshi continued, "Pakistan has always supported dialogue process for peaceful resolution of Afghan conflict and our stance has now also been vindicated by the worldwide community". However he said it was up to the Afghans themselves as to how they want to achieve the goal of peace.

His statement came around two weeks after he received a letter from President Donald Trump in which he sought Islamabad's cooperation in securing a negotiated settlement to the Afghan conflict.

Pakistan, China and Afghanistan on Saturday signed a Memorandum of Understanding vis-a-vis anti-terrorism cooperation in Kabul on Saturday, Radio Pakistan reported.

Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani said Pakistan has an important role for peace in Afghanistan.

Qureshi stressed that peace is vital to take forward the region on the path to sustainable development.

Amid accelerated efforts on the Afghan peace process, political parties said Friday that they will soon announce their negotiating team. He said Pakistan will benefit the most from the peace and stability of the neighboring country.

In order to defeat terrorism, Qureshi said, there is a need for increased cooperation and intelligence exchange between the neighbours.

Furthermore, the trio of delegations discussed the importance of China and Pakistan's "technical assistance in different sectors" for Afghanistan's progress.

Speaking during a press conference alongside his Afghan and Chinese counterparts, Mr. Qureshi said he visited Kabul to strengthen bilateral relations by bridging the trust gaps.

We are proud of the fact that we have been hosting our Afghan brothers and sisters for the past four decades, the minister stated.

The first ministerial meeting held in Beijing in December past year had helped Islamabad and Kabul make progress on the establishment of 'Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS)', which then became the new framework for steering the bilateral relations.

Afghan foreign minister Rabbani stressed upon collective efforts to tackle terrorism in the region and linked the peace and stability in Afghanistan with the development and prosperity of the region.

Foreign Ministers of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and China held a trilateral meeting in Kabul on Saturday where they discussed measures to boost political trust and join hands for a regional war against militancy which would facilitate the Afghan peace process, even as Taliban insurgents stepped up their attacks.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi described both Afghanistan and Pakistan as its strategic partners, adding that China had great political trust in the two.

Local broadcaster Geo TV quoted Qureshi as saying, "We are carrying the message of friendship and peace to Afghanistan".

Saturday's meeting took place at a time when Washington is stepping up its efforts to hold talks with the Taliban by meeting with regional powers on how to end the USA war in Afghanistan which began more than 17 years ago.
