ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Aizaz Chaudhry has on Wednesday said that Pakistan is bearing the negative impact of unstable Afghanistan for the last 38 years.

Reacting over US President Donald Trump’s Afghan policy, he said that Pakistan has always supported the global peace efforts in Afghanistan.

Pakistan is in favor of a peaceful Afghanistan and ready for playing a role for it because without Pakistan peace could not be restored there, he added.

Earlier Foreign Ministry said in a statement that no country in the world has done more than Pakistan to counter the menace of terrorism and Pakistan will continue to be part of the global counter terrorism efforts.

It emphasized that threat to peace and security cannot be isolated from the complex interplay of geopolitics, continued existence of festering disputes and pursuit of hegemonic policies. Non-resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute remains the primary obstacle to peace and stability in the region.

The statement said Pakistan is committed to working with the international community towards the common objective of defeating the forces of terrorism and to promote peace and stability in the South Asian region.
