Pakistan ready to assist in reviving Afghan peace process, UN told


UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to UN Maleeha Lodhi has told the UN General Assembly that Pakistan is ready to assist in the revival of an Afghan-led peace process once it is formally requested to do so by the Afghan government.
But for this, the “anti-Pakistan rhetoric from Kabul” also has to cease, she said while speaking in a debate in the General Assembly on the situation in Afghanistan. “It would be best for the Afghan government to resolutely tackle its internal weaknesses rather than externalise its problems,’ she remarked. Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN said that a negotiated peace was the only viable option to establish lasting stability in Afghanistan.
