World won't accept a government coming to power by force in Afghanistan: US State Department

World won't accept a government coming to power by force in Afghanistan: US State Department
July 15, 2021

WASHINGTON (92 News) – US State Department Spokesman Ned Price, responding to a question during a briefing on Wednesday, has said that the world is not ready to accept an Afghan government that comes to power only by force that has no respect for the human and universal rights of the Afghan people.

He said that such government will have not legitimacy in the eyes of much of the international community, and importantly, it’s not a government that I would suspect will have the assistance of the international community.

To another question, Ned Price said that Pakistan and the United States want a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan. "The United States and Pakistan share a number of interests. We have interests in the realm of counterterrorism; we have interests in the region. And those regional interests certainly include an Afghanistan that is stable, that is peaceful, that is secure. We have worked very closely with Pakistan over the course of many years in pursuit of some of those mutual interests," he maintained.

"When it comes to Pakistan, we know that Pakistan has much to gain from an Afghanistan that is peaceful, that is stable, that’s secure. And Pakistan has the potential to have a critical role in enabling that outcome. We do appreciate Pakistan’s efforts to advance the peace process and stability in South Asia, including by encouraging, as Pakistan has done, the Taliban to engage in substantive negotiations."

The spokesperson refused to comment on Prime Minister Imran Khan's statement regarding refusal to give Pakistani bases to the US.
