Saudi Arabia has assured Afghanistan of supporting its efforts in fight against terrorism and play role in the Afghan peace process.

This was conveyed during an official visit of National Security Advisor (NSA) Mohammad Hanif Atmar to Saudi Arabia during which he held meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

“Prince Mohammed bin Salman assured NSA of Saudi led IMCTC support from Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism; he further said Saudi Arabia would always play its role in the Afghan Peace Process to ensure lasting peace in Afghanistan,” the NSA office said in a statement.  

According to the statement, both sides have discussed important issues of mutual and regional interest including the support of Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) from Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism, and the Afghan Peace Process.

Qader Shah, Spokesman of NSA office on Thursday told Ariana News that Saudi Arabia officials have assured them will support the Afghan government  to bring Taliban into negotiation table.

This comes Political analysts believe,  seeking help for ensuring peace from outside channels will not have effective outcomes as long as the internal issues have not been solved in the country.
