Pakistani FM emphasizes importance of consensus with Iran for peace in Afghanistan

Islamabad, IRNA -- The Foreign Minister of Pakistan, who is scheduled to begin a regional tour including the Islamic Republic of Iran from tomorrow, has stressed the importance of the position of regional actors such as Tehran to help establish lasting peace in Afghanistan.

"Afghanistan's peace is inevitable for its neighbors and neighboring countries," Shah Mahmood Qureshi was quoted as saying on Monday.

He stressed: Islamabad seeks a regional consensus for Afghanistan and emphasizes that the role of neighbors in contributing to peace and stability in Afghanistan is a priority.

Referring to his plans to visit Iran, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, Qureshi said that they want the participation of all groups in Afghanistan to form a national and inclusive government.

Rejecting rumors of a trip to Afghanistan or a secret visit to Kabul, he noted that some media outlets in the subcontinent have created an atmosphere aimed at spoiling the efforts of neighboring countries to help Afghanistan.

He further noted that as Afghanistan's immediate neighbors, we must be vigilant against the enemies of peace, because they are still trying to sabotage everything.

A Pakistani foreign ministry spokesman had previously announced that Qureshi would travel to several countries in the region, including the Islamic Republic of Iran, as part of Islamabad's diplomatic efforts for peace in Afghanistan.

Diplomatic sources in Pakistan said that the Minister of Foreign Affairs will leave for the regional trip tomorrow.
