The Foreign Office (FO) has on Thursday said that Oakistan is looking forward to work with the New US Administration to further strengthen the bilateral ties to make it mutually beneficial.
At his weekly briefing in Islamabad, FO spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said that Pakistan wants to continue its partnership with the US to achieve stability and prosperity in the region.
The spokesperson said Pak-US bilateral relationship has been a factor for regional peace and stability. We have achieved a lot by working together in the past.
He stressed the continued engagement and coordination is even more compelling today in the context of shared geo political and security challenges.
The spokesperson said both the countries have worked closely to achieve the shared objective of peace in Afghanistan.
He said Pakistan appreciates the progress made by the Afghan peace process, emphasizing the need to further build on it.
There is no military solution to the conflict. An Afghan led and an Afghan owned political settlement is the best way to achieve lasting peace in the neighboring country, he added.
Moreover, he said the BJP government cannot mislead the world by such fabrications or hide its deep hatred for minorities in India.
The spokesperson urged the Indian government to ensure safety, security and protection of minorities, particularly Muslims and their places of worship, and fulfill its responsibilities under the international laws.
He said the use of force against the protesting Sikh farmers is not the conduct of a democratic government. He said India is not a democracy but is a fascist state.
