KABUL (Pajhwok): Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday said that prosperous and stable Afghanistan was in the interest of Pakistan and international community, according to a media report.

The Pakistani prime minister said this while addressing the 6th summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia in Kazakhstan, according to dawn.com.

“Prosperous and stable Afghanistan is not only in the interest of Pakistan, but also for the international community,” he said.

He said four decades of conflict took not only heavy toll on the country but also upon Pakistan.

Pakistan, he said, suffered immense damage to its peace and security with serious consequences in the shape of 80,000 casualties and billions of dollars in financial losses.

The prime minister expressed satisfaction that after immense sacrifices, Pakistan was now able to control extremism and terrorism on its soil while managing to host four million Afghan refugee.

PM Shehbaz called for pooling resources among the regional countries to address the common challenges in the interest of peace and progress.

“If we team our resources, Asia can stand with pride and achievement,” he said. “Through constructive dialogue, we can build mutual trust”.

Sharif’s statement comes at a time when acting Afghan government often reiterated its call for cordial relationship with the neighbors and international community.

Acting Afghan government said it was committed to Doha Agreement on the bases of which it will not allow its soil to be used against its neighbor and expected reciprocal behavior from other nations.

The sixth summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia (CICA) began in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan on Wednesday.
