ISLAMABAD: U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad visited Islamabad from the 17th to 18th February and spoke at a UNHCR-sponsored conference marking 40 years of Pakistan’s support to Afghan refugees.

Ambassador Khalilzad also met with UN Secretary General Guterres to discuss the Afghan peace process. He also held meetings with Prime Minister Imran Khan, Foreign Minister Qureshi, Chief of Army Staff General Bajwa and other senior officials to discuss U.S. efforts to facilitate a political settlement to end the war in Afghanistan.

He welcomed Pakistan’s ongoing efforts to support a reduction in violence that will pave the way for a U.S.-Taliban agreement, intra-Afghan negotiations and a “comprehensive and permanent ceasefire in support of a sustainable peace”. –PR
