Pakistan Calls for ‘Responsible’ US Pull-out from Afghanistan

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Tuesday said that being an important stakeholder in Afghan peace process, Pakistan wanted a ‘responsible’ withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
He was briefing a joint press conference with his German counterpart, Heiko Maas, who arrived here earlier in the day to hold discussions on regional peace and situation in Afghanistan.
He said that Pakistan had been saying for long that Afghan issue could only be resolved through dialogue and added, “We are glad that now the world was acknowledging our version.”
He said a responsible withdrawal of troops would be in better interest of Pakistan as well as the regional countries.
The German foreign minister said that terrorism was a global challenge and Pakistan had taken a lot of steps in that regard.
“Pakistan is playing an important role in Afghanistan, being a responsible regional country also, we think that Afghan government has to be part of the process for a sustainable peace in the region,” he added.
“We feel that inclusion of Afghan government in every table talk is imperative,” he concluded.
