Pakistan Rejects The Guardian Report On 'Hit List'

The Foreign Office (FO) Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry has on Thursday said that Pakistan supports the principle of responsible troop withdrawal in coordination with Afghan stakeholders.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in its Twitter thread said that the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan coincides with the progress in the Afghan Peace Process.

He said we also hope the US will continue to urge the Afghan leaders to seize this historic opportunity for achieving a political settlement in Afghanistan.

The spokesperson said Pakistan will continue to work together with the international community in the efforts for lasting peace and stability in Afghanistan.

Moreover, the spokesperson also added that promoting reconstruction and economic development in post-conflict Afghanistan is important for ensuring sustainable peace and stability.

The Spokesperson said Pakistan has consistently reiterated that peace and stability in Afghanistan are in our interest.

Furthermore, he said Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to a peaceful, stable, united, democratic, sovereign and prosperous Afghanistan.

It is pertinent to mention here that US President Joe Biden has decided to pull US troops from Afghanistan by 11th September 2011, almost after 20 years.

According to sources, the withdrawal would be based on security and human rights guarantees.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin are likely to brief the decision to NATO allies in Brussels. The US President will also announce his decision publicly, the sources added.
