Rawalpindi- While commenting about recent news reports appearing in a section of the press about peace talks between Afghan Government and Afghan Taliban, a spokesman of ISPR has said that, reconciliation between Afghan Government and Afghan Taliban to bring lasting peace and stability in Afghanistan always comes up, during any meeting related to Afghanistan.

Pakistan has always supported such process, and re-emphasized it to be absolutely transparent, Afghan owned and Afghan led. While onus for such negotiations to succeed lies on both parties concerned Pakistan in all sincerity, will support the process as peace in Afghanistan will contribute to peace in the region. The ISPR hoped all stake holders will continue to act with responsibility not to allow detractors of peace to succeed.
