LONDON: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Afghan President Hamid Karzai and British Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday reaffirmed their continuing commitment for the Afghan peace process. 

The three leaders during their trilateral meeting at Ten Downing Street on Tuesday afternoon discussed the economic co-operation and the Afghan-led peace process to which they all reaffirmed their continuing commitment.

Afghanistan and Pakistan shared their interests in advancing regional peace, stability and prosperity.

The British PM earlier welcomed the Afghan President Karzai and Nawaz for the trilateral discussions, both of whom are in London for the World Islamic Economic Forum.

This was the first meeting of the three countries since Premier Nawaz assumed his office in May this year.

On Sunday, officials in Kabul said that Karzai will push Pakistan to reveal the location of key Taliban commander Mullah Baradar.

@objective observer: Pakistan wants peace; the guys in Kabul are not the representatives of the Afghan people. Rather, they are stooges imposed on the people on Afghanistan. The insurgency in Afghanistan is Afghan driven not sponsored by Pakistan.

NS heads to London and Kayani travels to China for consultations on geopolitics. The more things change the more they stay the same. Same old song and dance routine. Pakistan refuses to grow up and chart a new course in its turbulent history.
