The FM also expressed concerns over the violence in Afghanistan.

He said reduction in violence leading to ceasefire is imperative to move forward.

He stressed that both the Afghan government and the Taliban will have to demonstrate flexibility to reach a settlement.

Blame game

Moreover, the FM expressed concerns over the statements of Afghan Vice President and the National Security Adviser against Pakistan.

He further said this blame game must come to an end as it will not help.

Shah Mahmood said Pakistan could not be held responsible for all the ills in Afghanistan.

He said that there spoilers inside and outside Afghanistan and both the parties should be fully cognizant of their nefarious designs.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan has taken a very clear decision of non-interference.

He further said that Pakistan has no favorites in Afghanistan.

He said we have invited every Afghan ethnic group to Pakistan to discuss peace and stability.

The Foreign Minister said Pakistan is doing everything possible for the management of border with Afghanistan.

He, however, said increase in the footprints of Daesh in Afghanistan is a matter of concern.

Furthermore, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan has been hosting a sizeable number of Afghan refugees.

Now, time has come for their dignified and honorable return to their homeland.
