Responding to a question at his weekly media briefing in Islamabad on Friday, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that Pakistan will urge upon the future government of Afghanistan to ensure that its soil should not be used against Pakistan.

To a question, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that Pakistan believes that an inclusive political settlement is the best way forward and for that we remain engaged with all sides in Afghanistan and the international community.

The Spokesperson said that Pakistan sees a convergence amongst the international community on peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan and any Country working against the peace and reconciliation process and causing instability there will face international isolation.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that Pakistan has shared irrefutable evidence with the world about India’s involvement in state terrorism in Pakistan and the use of Afghan soil for this purpose.
