China, Pakistan stress positive influence on Afghan peace process

By: The Kabul Times

KABUL: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, in a telephone conversation with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi, stoutly supported an “Afghan-led and Afghan-owned” peace push.
Under the current circumstances, he stressed, China and Pakistan must continue to strengthen strategic coordination to exert a more positive influence on the peace process in Afghanistan.
Under such circumstances, China expects the United Nations to play its due role, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization to pay more attention to the situation, and Afghanistan’s neighbors to strengthen communication, speak with one voice and take coordinated actions, Wang said.
Qureshi said Pakistan appreciated the joint statement on Afghanistan issued after the China+Central Asia foreign ministers’ meeting.
The US and NATO troops should leave Afghanistan in an orderly and responsible manner and support Afghanistan’s neighbors in playing a bigger role in pushing forward the peace process, Qureshi opined.
