Kabul: Afghanistan said Tuesday that Pakistan had an "important" role to play at the Bonn conference and expressed hope that Islamabad could reverse a decision to boycott the talks.

"We regard Pakistan as an important country in the region, we hope our Pakistani brothers will be there," foreign ministry spokesman Janan Mosazai said of the December 5 conference on Afghanistan`s future.

Mosazai said the ministry had not received an official confirmation from Pakistan that it would not attend.

But he added, "Our Pakistani brothers should remember that Bonn is an Afghan conference, it will be chaired and led by Afghans."
