Qureshi urges Taliban to form inclusive govt in Afghanistan

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has urged Afghan Taliban and its former rulers to form an inclusive political structure in Afghanistan after consultations.

In a statement on Friday, Qureshi said that an Afghan delegation also held talks with him and Prime Minister Imran Khan on the matter. He added that there are some elements who do not want Afghanistan to become peaceful and stable.

The foreign minister highlighted those anti-peace elements are bent upon playing the role of spoilers. He said that it is the test of Afghan leadership’s intelligence and wisdom as to how they cope with such challenges.

He mentioned that nobody wants bloodshed in Afghanistan but peace and stability. He reiterated that Pakistan is committed to playing a positive role for peace in the region.

The FM said he intends to visit neighbouring countries in the next few days to chalk out a comprehensive strategy after consultations.
