Peace in Pakistan linked to peaceful Afghanistan: Khawaja Asif

Defence minister says Pakistan wants to improve ties with India, Afghanistan

Web Desk November 25, 2014

ISLAMABAD: Stressing the significance of regional cooperation, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif on Tuesday said peace in Pakistan is linked to peace in Afghanistan, Express News reported.

Addressing a press conference following an event at the Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad, Asif condemned Indian attacks along the Line of Control (LoC) and emphasised that disputed matters could be resolved through dialogue between the two countries.

“We want to maintain peace in the subcontinent,” he added.

Speaking about the US polices in the Asian region, the minister said the superpower has badly failed.

He, however, added that recent visit of Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif has clearly improved ties with US.

@Afghan Maihan: Very well said and if this is so and you are so strong and capable for Afghanistan's defence then will you explain that why the new Afghan president Abdul Ghani permitted US' forces for more one year for staying in Afghanistan and allowed US for direct attacks in Afghanistan by signing a contract with US' leadership on which US' president Barak Obama signed in the last week?????

Peace will be common there, where the practice of justice will be common in the habits of the people at large.
