Pakistan wants stable, inclusive govt in Afghanistan: Fawad


LAHORE, Sep 05 (APP): Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said on Sunday that Pakistan had very clear policy on Afghanistan, and that was that it wanted stability and peace in the neighbouring country.

Talking to the media after offering condolences to Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Shami, editor of Daily Pakistan, over the death of his elder brother here at his residence, he said Pakistan would support an inclusive government in Afghanistan.

As far as the recognition of Taliban authorities was concerned, Pakistan did not want to take a unilateral decision, and it would go along with the regional countries and other global powers.

The federal information minister said that General Faiz Hameed is not the first intelligence chief, who visited Kabul. According to the media reports, the intelligence chiefs of the USA, Turkey and Qatar also visited Kabul, he said adding that the intelligence agencies had their own working style.

Any situation in Afghanistan would have deep impact on Pakistan, because it has strategic, political, social and economic relations with the neighbouring country, so we cannot ignore Afghanistan, he added.

Currently, there is a political vacuum in Afghanistan and no government is in place there. In such a situation, the intelligence relations are used to remove each other’s reservations and bring the two sides to dialogue to establish good relations.
