Pakistan said on Sunday it was playing a sincere role in efforts to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan -- a common objective for the neighbors.
Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain, addressing the SCO Summit in Qingdao, China, said Pakistan welcomed President Ashraf Ghani’s initiatives for peace with the Taliban.
Radio Pakistan quoted Hussain as calling a ceasefire in Afghanistan a positive sign for regional peace. Pakistan and Afghanistan were working on a peace strategy on a bilateral basis, he said.
He suggested the establishment of a development fund to eliminate terrorism and extremism. He also stressed capacity-building and skill development of youth of member states.
Hussain claimed his country had rendered unprecedented sacrifices in the war on terror, asking the global community to stand united in meeting common challenges.
