Khalilzad Meets Pakistani Officials on Afghan Peace

ISLAMABAD – The United States Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad met with Pakistani officials Monday, and held a dialogue session on the current Afghan peace process.
Khalilzad spoke to General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Pakistani Chief of Army Staff, as they discussed about the ongoing Afghan peace process.
The Inter-Services Public Relations, Pakistan military’s media affairs wing, said Mr Khalilzad “greatly appreciated” Pakistan’s role in the ongoing peace process saying “it could not have succeeded without Pakistan’s sincere and unconditional support”.
Pakistan says it facilitated the US-Taliban agreement signed in February, got the warring sides to observe ceasefire on Eid, and helped break the stalemate over the prisoners’ release that had been delaying the start of the intra-Afghan dialogue.
Gen Bajwa said: “Prime Minister Imran Khan has given clear vision regarding peace and connectivity in the region and all elements of national power are united towards making that vision a reality to ensure long-awaited peace, progress and prosperity in the region.”
In a statement on Mr Khalilzad’s trip, the US embassy said he “stressed the need for ongoing regional and international support for this historic opportunity for peace”.
