New York: Afghanistan believes in comprehensive, long term and friendly relations with Pakistan, said Afghanistan Foreign Minister Zarar Ahmad Osmani at the UN General Assembly on Saturday.
Osmani said: “Afghanistan strongly believes in comprehensive, long term, friendly and good-neighbourly relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism and strengthening of peace and stability between two nations and in the region.”
However, he also expressed concern over the rocket attacks by Pakistani forces into Afghanistan.
“Continuation of such attacks is unacceptable for Afghanistan.”
“We hope that the government of Pakistan, considering our common interests in ensuring peace and stability, put an end to any kind of acts that can endanger the outlook of good neighborly relations,” the minister said.
Osmani also said that “Afghanistan has achieved a significant milestone with the successful conclusion of the presidential election including the important task of recounting the votes.”
New President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzi will be sworn in Sep 29.
Osmani also focused on the transfer of security responsibilities from International forces to the Afghan National Security Forces by the end of this year.
The minister also spoke about development efforts in the fields of education for girls, health,communications and information technology, promotion and protection of humans rights.
