Pakistan wants \'responsible withdrawal\' of US troops from Afghanistan: FM Qureshi

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said Pakistan wants a ‘responsible withdrawal’ of US troops from Afghanistan after the historic peace deal between the US and Afghan-Taliban is signed.

“We want a responsible withdrawal,” Quereshi told Reuters in Qatar’s capital of Doha, when asked about the timeframe for American forces’ departure. “It’s an important day. Hopefully, it will set the tone for peace and stability in Afghanistan.”

FM further said that the pact could bring an end to the United States’ 18-year war in Afghanistan. The country [Afghanistan] would need the world’s support in rehabilitation and recuperation, added.

US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad called upon FM Qureshi to update him about the peace deal.

“Pakistan hopes for intra-Afghan dialogue,” FM Qureshi said. “Pakistan would continue its efforts for lasting peace and stability in Afghanistan.”

Saturday is a “monumental day for Afghanistan”, the United States embassy in Kabul said on Twitter, just hours before the signing of a pact with Taliban that could bring an end to the 18-year war in the South Asian nation.
