ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan has welcomed the announcement regarding the US-Taliban agreement, said Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Foorqui on Friday.
She said that Pakistan has consistently supported direct negotiations between the US and Taliban. “From the outset, Pakistan has facilitated this process and contributed to its progress. We look forward to the signing of the agreement on February 29. We believe the signing of the US-Taliban agreement will pave the way for the next step of intra-Afghan negotiations.
“We hope the Afghan parties would now seize this historic opportunity and work out a comprehensive and inclusive political settlement for durable peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region.”

“We are also looking forward to the international community playing its part in reinforcing the efforts for the establishment of sustainable peace in Afghanistan and helping to create conditions inside Afghanistan to enable the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan to their homeland with dignity and honour,” she added.
