Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Friday said Pakistan welcomes the agreement between Taliban and other parties that will be inked February 29.

In a series of tweets, the special assistant to PM  told Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi will represent Pakistan on this occasion.

She said the signing ceremony will be attended by foreign ministers of seven countries and representatives from fifty countries including the Emir of Qatar.

Dr Firdous added historic progress towards Afghan peace process is a victory of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s stance and reflection of exemplary role of Pakistan Army.

She stated Islamabad will continue to play its positive role for promotion of sustainable peace and stability in the region.

PM Imran has always “supported the dialogue” to resolve the Afghan conundrum, she added. Pakistan will continue to play its positive role for peace and stability, Firdous added.

Last week, Qatar had invited Pakistan to attend the deal signing ceremony between United States and the Afghan Taliban.

On behalf of the Qatari Foreign Minister, the invitation was extended by the Qatari Ambassador to Pakistan Saqr Bin Mubarak during a meeting with FM Qureshi in Islamabad on Tuesday.

In his remarks on the occasion, the foreign minister said Pakistan and Qatar have played a pivotal role in furthering the Afghan reconciliation process.

He said it has always been the stance of Pakistan that there is no military solution to the Afghan conflict. He said the world is now also accepting Pakistan’s stance.
