US withdrawal from Afghanistan will help further peace process, says Qureshi

AVA- Talking to journalists, the foreign minister said the decision [of US troops withdrawal] will help further the ongoing peace talks being held in UAE between the Afghan Taliban and the US.
The US has about 14,000 troops in Afghanistan working either with a NATO mission to support Afghan forces or in separate counter-terrorism operations.
The Wall Street Journal reported that more than 7,000 troops would be returning from Afghanistan.
Qureshi said Pakistan has also released some [Afghan Taliban] prisoners so that “an enabling environment” conducive to the talks can be created.
He asserted that Pakistan will continue to play whatever role it can play to support the Afghan peace process.
