Pakistani Minister for Foreign Affairs Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Pakistan wanted a ‘responsible’ withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
Addressing a joint press conference with his German counterpart Heiko Maas on Tuesday, FM Qureshi said a responsible withdrawal of troops would be in better interest of Pakistan as well as the regional countries.

This comes as after the elapse of 16-days breath-taking talks between Americans and Taliban delegation in Doha, they have “agreed in draft” on counter-terrorism assurance and troops withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“Pakistan is playing an important role in Afghanistan, being a responsible regional country also, we think that Afghan government has to be part of the process for a sustainable peace in the region,” German FM Heiko Maas said.
“We feel that inclusion of Afghan government in every table talk is imperative,” he added.
