Election uproar in Afghanistan, Pakistan desires peaceful solution

ISLAMABAD- Pakistan has called for a peaceful settlement of differences over the presidential election runoff in neighbouring Afghanistan.

This call was made after a leading presidential candidate Dr Abdullah Abdullah rejected the preliminary results—the matter raised concern about the looming political crisis.

Afghan media had earlier reported that Abdullah was set to announce a parallel government in his speech to hundreds of supporters in Kabul but delayed the announcement after a call from President Barack Obama.

“It is our earnest hope that all related issues would be resolved peacefully, through dialogue, in a timely manner and within the framework of Afghanistan’s Constitution and laws,” claimed the Pakistan Foreign Ministry.

The Foreign Ministry spokesperson said a peaceful, stable, unified and prosperous Afghanistan is vital for regional peace and stability.
