Presidential spokesman Shah Hussain Murtazvi told reporters that Afghanistan is in front line of fighting international terrorism, Pakistan can adopt a new approach toward Afghanistan.
He said by adopting a positive approach, Pakistan can turn into a good partner is the region.
The remarks by the Afghan presidential palace officials came as pressures on the rise on Islamabad due to the presence of the terrorist sanctuaries in Pakistan, specifically the Taliban and Haqqani terrorist network leadership councils.
Speaking during the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, President Trump said “It is time to expose and hold responsible those countries who support and finance terror groups like Al Qaida, Hezbollah, the Taliban and others that slaughter innocent people.”
“The United States and our allies are working together throughout the Middle East to crush the loser terrorists and stop the reemergence of safe havens they use to launch attacks on all of our people,” he added.
While announcing the new US strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia last month, the US President Donald Trump strongly criticized Pakistan regarding the terror sanctuaries, saying “For its part, Pakistan often gives safe haven to agents of chaos, violence, and terror. The threat is worse because Pakistan and India are two nuclear-armed states whose tense relations threaten to spiral into conflict. And that could happen.”
