Afghanistan Welcomes the Joint Declaration by the EU and Pakistan on Afghanistan
KABUL – Afghanistan welcomes the declaration issued by two of its significant partners, Pakistan and the EU focusing on the peace talks in Afghanistan. The statement’s reaffirmation of the EU and Pakistan’s commitment to successful peace talks in Afghanistan is valuable.
Calls from our international allies for reduction in violence and an immediate ceasefire would strengthen the chances of the success of the talks. The end state of the talks where the Islamic Republic remains intact and the rights of Afghan citizens are preserved will be an ideal outcome for all.
In recognition of the impact of the peace talks regionally specially in fighting violent extremism, illegal migration, drugs and human trafficking, strengthening regional and global consensus for the success of the peace talks is critical.
