Pak wants to see `united, independent, sovereign` Afghan: Sherry Rehman
Islamabad: Pakistan`s Ambassador to the US, Sherry Rehman has said Pakistan wants to see Afghanistan as a united, independent and sovereign state. She urged all concerned to join the reconciliation process.
Rehman said the US` decision to conclude the war in Afghanistan in 2014 - the longest in its history - looms large over policy and public debates. She added that there is deep concern over whether the US will be able to leave a reasonably stable Afghanistan behind or if the blood and treasure invested over the course of a decade will have yielded no tangible results, reports the Daily Times.
She said it is crucial that the principal actors in this fight - the US, Pakistan and Afghanistan - get it right this time round. She said Pakistan cannot afford a repeat of the 1990s, when the Soviet withdrawal led to the same by the US and Afghanistan sank into a devastating internecine conflict.
She said to prevent a repeat of history after 2014, US and Pakistan must trust each other, understand each other challenges, recognise that the problems in Afghanistan are multi dimensional and require the same complex solutions.
