Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Tuesday said that there was no military solution to Afghan war. Addressing the inaugural session of Pakistan select envoys conference, the minister said that Pakistan wanted better relations with all its neighbours on the basis of equality. The conference has been convened to discuss the situation in the region, particularly in the wake of President Trump’s Afghan and South Asia policy and suggest the government about the policy response.
He added that peace in Afghanistan was in Pakistan interests. The minister sought recommendations from the envoys present at the meeting regarding the prevailing geo-political situation.
The minister underlined the need to highlight continuing human rights violations in Indian occupied Kashmir on all available international platforms.
Among those attending the conference are Pakistan’s envoys from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE and Belgium, US, Russia and China.
The concluding session of the three-day moot will be chaired by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who will give guidelines to the envoys of Pakistan in different world capitals regarding Pakistan foreign policy.
The participants will discuss potential strength of the foreign policy and options available in view of the current geo-political and regional situation.
