Pakistan has warned that any political vacuum in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of international troops in 2014 could prove harmful for the region.

In an interview ‚ the Foreign Office spokesperson Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said Pakistan‚ on its part will continue to play positive role to push forward the Afghan reconciliation process‚ which is all inclusive.

He said Islamabad strongly supports an afghan-led and afghan-owned peace process. We believe that the Afghan people should decide their own fate and no regional country should interfere in it. He made it clear that Pakistan has no favorite groups in Afghanistan.

When asked about relations with India‚ the spokesperson said New Delhi has never demonstrated sincerity at the bilateral level to resolve the outstanding issue of Kashmir.

He said Pakistan supports mediation of third party particularly of the United Nations to resolve this lingering dispute but India is opposed to it.
