National Security Adviser (NSA) Dr Moeed Yusuf on Friday said that a stable Afghanistan was inevitable for peace in the region.

In an interview to a Russian TV channel, the NSA said that Pakistan had always stressed that there should be a political solution in Afghanistan.

He said Afghanistan had been at war for the last four decades, where Pakistan had hosted more than four million refugees in the past.

“Pakistan wants to see a stable and peaceful Afghanistan and is talking for peace and stability in the region,” Moeed said.

The NSA said that Pakistan was not speaking on behalf of Taliban. “India has always played a role of spoiler in the region. It has already been proved to the world that India used fake news to spread its false narrative on Panjshir Valley,” he added.

He said that Russia, Pakistan, and China could play a positive and active role in Afghanistan.
