Pakistan PM Imran khan explains Qureshi’s comments on IS; says it has ‘no top choices’ in Afghanistan
Last week, Pakistan PM Imran Khan had said that the Pakistan government isn’t a representative for the Taliban and Islamabad can’t be considered liable for the activities of the guerilla bunch in Afghanistan following the withdrawal of officers from the US and its partners.
Pakistan pm on Monday explained that it supported no specific side in war-torn Afghanistan and said Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s new remarks on the Islamic State (IS) and Afghan Taliban were being “misjudged”.
Mr. Qureshi ex Pakistan PM , during a question and answer session in Multan on Saturday, was gotten some information about reports of IS aggressors moving into Afghanistan.
“Assuming they’re moving in from Iraq or Syria, whose obligation is it to check them? The Afghan government’s… Who needs to keep a watch on them and screen them? The Afghan rulers and government need to. I trust they will not disregard their obligation,” he had answered.
He expounded that neither the Afghan government nor the Taliban, Afghanistan’s neighbors or the worldwide local area needed an IS resurgence. “There is an accord on this. Presently they have an obligation and they ought to satisfy it,” he had said.
However, his comments were introduced via web-based media and in Afghan press as though he anticipated the Taliban, and not the Afghan government, to deal with the circumstance.
“The unfamiliar clergyman obviously talked about agreement among the global local area, the local players and the actual Afghans against the danger of psychological warfare. His comments can’t in any capacity be confused as support for a specific side in the Afghan struggle,” the Foreign Office said in the proclamation.
“We have more than once expressed that Pakistan has no top choices in Afghanistan. We consider all to be in the contention as Afghans who need to choose about their future themselves. We will keep on playing a valuable assistance job in the Afghan harmony measure,” the assertion said.
It required an “comprehensive, wide based and exhaustive” political settlement to the Afghan struggle.
