Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said a peace agreement between the United States and Afghan Taliban will hopefully be signed in Doha tomorrow.

The Minister said Pakistan has been invited to become part of this entire process and participate in it. He said this is an honor for Pakistan and acknowledgement of its efforts.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said today, Pakistan has a central role at world level and the world is lauding its role for establishment of peace in Afghanistan.
