Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan was a facilitator and not the guarantor of peace in Afghanistan.

Foreign minister said that peace and stability in Afghanistan is a shared responsibility of the international community and Pakistan has played its role in this respect.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, he said Pakistan facilitated the Afghan Peace Process with utmost sincerity.

Qureshi urged the international community and the regional countries to play their due role to facilitate peace and stability in Afghanistan.

The Foreign Minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan has always said that there is no military solution to the situation in Afghanistan. A negotiated, inclusive and broad-based political settlement is the only way forward to establish peace in Afghanistan, he added.

He said it the people of Afghanistan to decide their future as Pakistan has no favourites there.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan fully rejects the baseless accusations made by the Afghan Representative in UN Security Council. He urged the Government of Afghanistan to refrain from blaming Pakistan for failures of others. He said I have invited Afghan Foreign Minister to visit Islamabad to and discuss and resolve issues if any on the dialogue table.

He called upon all the sides to respect human rights as withdrawal of US and NATO troops are nearing completion.
