Sherpao welcomes Af-Pak hotline contact

Sherpao welcomes Af-Pak hotline contact

Apr 06, 2017 - 08:36

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): A senior politician has welcomed the first hotline communication between Pakistaninfo-icon and Afghan military commanders, hoping the step will help improve the situation.

Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) head Aftab Sherpao said the hotline communication was a constructive gesture -- a process that should further be accelerated.

After the reopening of border, the former interior minister suggested, measures should be taken to ease the tensions and restore cordial ties between the neighbours.

In a statement, Sherpao said a good working relationship between the two nations was not only in their interests but it was essential for peace and tranquility in the entire region.

Unnecessary escalation of tension further aggravated the already grim situation, which brought untold sufferings to the masses, the ex-chief minister lamented.
