Islamabad wants peace in Afghanistan: Asif

Pakistani Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif

Pakistani Defense Minister Khawaja Asif has said that Pakistan wants peace and stability in Afghanistan.

Khawaja Asif noted Pakistan would continue its efforts to establish durable peace in Afghanistan.

Asif stated the US drone attack was not a failure of Pakistan’s foreign policy.  “But it definitely has implications for the process through which peace is being established in Afghanistan,” he said.

Pakistani defense minster asked both USA and Afghanistan to show their sincerity for establishing durable peace in Afghanistan and the Afghans should end the blame game, in this regard.

The minister said top leaders of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had safe houses in Afghanistan.

“Everyone knows about this but the United States has been unwilling to take action on those safe houses where TTP leaders like Mullah Fazlullah are planning attacks on Pakistani soil,” he said.

This comes as Afghanistan has always accused Pakistan support to Taliban, which has been struggling to combat terrorism.
