At the same time as the opening of the Lahore Process, which was hosted by the Lahore Research Center and the Pakistan Foreign Ministry, Pakistan’s foreign minister said that Islamabad had never wanted to continue fighting in Afghanistan. Mahmoud Qureshi said at the opening ceremony: “Our common enemy uses different tricks to smash the two countries, but Pakistan never gives the opportunity to these groups to use their soil against another country. Pakistan has always believed that the end of the Afghan crisis is possible through political dialogue, I am sure for everyone that Prime Minister Imran Khan is also in favor of the peace process in Afghanistan and wants a peaceful end to this trend. ”
The meeting was hosted by Pakistanis in Lahore, with the participation of a number of political figures, including Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, leader of the Islamic Party and the candidate, and Hanif Atmar, presidential candidate. This meeting is due to end today. The meeting discussed ways to achieve peace and the end of the 40-year-old crisis in Afghanistan. But the main parties, which are the Afghan government and the Taliban, have no representation at this meeting.
