Wells, Khalilzad to arrive in Pakistan for talks on Afghan peace process
US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, South and Central Asia Alice Wells and US Special Representative for Afghan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad will arrive in Islamabad later today to hold meetings.
Foreign Office spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said the meetings are “part of regular consultations, on bilateral relationship and Afghan peace process”.
Last week, Zalmay Khalilzad praised Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement on Afghanistan.
“Greatly appreciate ImranKhan PTI’s statement yesterday on #Afghanistan. His appeal for reduction of violence and policy against promoting internal conflict in other nations has potential to positively transform the region and give Pakistan a leading role,” Khalilzad tweeted on Friday.
In his statement, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan would not be a party to any internal conflict in Afghanistan anymore. The prime minister added that Pakistan was fully supporting the Afghan peace process including the intra-Afghan dialogue.
“Pakistan has committed all diplomatic and security capital to success of peace process,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said in the statement.
