Pak-Afghanistan agree on China-led mechanisms for crisis management

Pakistan-Afghanistan rift have deepened further after the Afghan government put blame of the recent attack in Kabul's diplomatic area on Islamabad.

"Pakistan has consistently emphasized that peace and stability in Afghanistan is in our interest and a stable Afghanistan would help us to promote our shared agenda of economic development and regional connectivity", he added.

Last week, India and Afghanistan opened a direct commercial air route, bypassing Pakistan with which ties of both the neighbours have soured over the issue of terrorism. He said this would enable the two sides to maintain timely and effective communications in case of any emergencies, including terrorist attacks. The Chinese side would support this mechanism.

President Mamnoon Hussain Sunday expressed the hope that China's honest efforts would bring permanent peace and stability in the region and assured that Pakistan would continue to fully cooperate in this regard.

The three parties believe that peace and reconciliation is the fundamental solution to the Afghan issue, which could not be solved by violent means.

The Global Times in a commentary advised India "to develop economic and trade relations" with China's "all-weather ally" Pakistan where Beijing is building a multi-billion dollar economic corridor.

It added that "the three parties believe that the Quadrilateral Coordination Group should be revived to create an enabling environment for peace talks and for Taliban to join the peace talks".

Wang visited Islamabad and Kabul on June 24 and 25.

In Pakistan, Wang "held wide-ranging discussions" on bilateral relations, regional security and the situation in Afghanistan, the Pakistani foreign ministry said in a tweet.

"We will conduct shuttle diplomacy to help improve relations between the two countries within our capacity and also to promote the peace process in Afghanistan", Geng said.

Sartaj Aziz declared that Pakistan wants peaceful relations with all its neighbors including India and agreed on the need for strategic balance in South Asia.

On arrival, he met with Afghan acting foreign minister Salahuddin Rabbani and number of other officials where they discussed the agreements forged between the Afghan and Chinese presidents at Shanghai Summit in Astana earlier this month.

"The neighbouring countries are trying to interrupt policies within Afghanistan to create a cultural gap in order to get to their objectives". China's foreign minister says Beijing wil.

The dedicated air corridor between India and Afghanistan bypassing Pakistan is an attempt by New Delhi to counterbalance China's ambitious economic corridor via PoK and show its "stubborn geopolitical thinking", a leading Chinese daily commented today.

The president underscored that Pakistan earnestly wished for establishment of peace in Afghanistan so that stability in the region could be maintained.
