ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said the peace in Afghanistan will enable Pakistan to enhance its access to the Central Asian Republics. Premier was talking to a delegation of Pak-Afghan Youth Forum in Islamabad.
Prime Minister was responding to the questions from the forum’s youths that all the future Pakistani economic policies depend on peace in Afghanistan as a precursor. Pakistanis consider the people of Afghanistan their brothers.
Khan said Pakistan will neither hold any talks with India nor will accept Indian participation in Afghan peace process till the August 5, 2019 action was reversed.
PM further said that the status of the Occupied Kashmir must be restored under which Kashmiris had the right of self-determination as per UN Resolutions.
The recent statements from Afghan leaders blaming Pakistan for the Afghan crisis is unfortunate, the PM Imran Khan said, adding that it is Pakistan that has strived hard to convince the Taliban first for talks with the United States and then with the Afghan government.
The Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan has always desired peace with its neighbours but it was India that did not want peace because it was at present under the influence of RSS ideology.
