Zahid Hafeez said instead of indulging in blame game, the Afghan leadership should spent all energy on making the peace process successful.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson welcomed the UN Secretary General’s recent report.

IOJK and BJP-led India
He said the meeting held in New Delhi last week was yet another attempt by the BJP government to further marginalize the Kashmiri people to perpetuate India’s illegal occupation in illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Moreover, Chaudhri said the meeting also further exposed the falsehood of the Indian narrative of so called normalcy in the occupied valley.
He said any steps that are aimed at bringing further illegal change in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir will not be accepted by the Kashmiris and will also be resolutely opposed by Pakistan.
He underlined the solution of Kashmir dispute as per the UN Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people the only viable option.
