Prosperous Pakistan tied to stable Afghanistan: Asfandyar

Prosperous Pakistan tied to stable Afghanistan: Asfandyar

Apr 12, 2017 - 08:57

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Veteran Pakhtun nationalist leader Asfandyar Wali Khan has hailed recent talks between Pakistaninfo-icon and Afghanistaninfo-icon on contentious bilateral issues.

The Awami National Party (ANP), addressing a gathering here on Tuesday, asked the government to understand that a prosperous Pakistan was not possible without a stable Afghanistan. 

A resolution of all issues between the two countries through peaceful means was the need of the hour, Khan said, urging the neighbours to take confidence-building measures.

Senior Afghan and Pakistani diplomats recently met in the United Kingdom, agreeing on resuming political engagement at different levels to sort out bilateral irritants.

Days later, military commanders from the two countries spoke on the hotline after months of hiatus. The two sides have been at loggerheads on border management and arrest of Afghan citizens.
