Imran Khan Meets With Afghan Youth Forum Peace In Afghanistan To Give Pakistan Access To Cars: PM

Prime Minister Imran Khan says Pakistan wanted peace in Afghanistan more than any other country in the world as peace in the region will give Islamabad an access to the central Asian Republics.

The Prime Minister while talking to a delegation of Pak-Afghan youth forum said they have already signed an agreement with Uzbekistan for a railway line from Mazar Sharif to Peshawar, which will reach Pakistan via Afghanistan.

The meeting was aimed at presenting the government’s view in response to the questions raised by the members of Pak Afghan Youth Forum about Pakistan-Afghanistan Relations, Pakistan’s efforts for sustainable peace in Afghanistan as well as the overall situation in the region.

The Prime Minister said that all the future economic policies of Pakistan depended on peace in Afghanistan.

He, however, added that recent statements from afghan leaders blaming Pakistan for afghan crisis was unfortunate because it was Pakistan which strived hard to convince Taliban first for talks with the united states and then with afghan government.

To another question, the prime minister said unfortunately there was a misconception in Afghanistan, which was based on Indian Propaganda, that Pakistan was controlled by military institutions.

Imran Khan said that his foreign policy was based on his party’s 25 years of manifesto, adding, he had a consistent view that there was no military solution of the afghan conflict, which could only be resolved through political means.

In reply to a question, he said India through its unilateral august 5, 2019 action violated the United Nations resolutions and changed the status of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
