Pakistan’s FM embarks on visit to regional countries to build consensus on Afghanistan

FM Qureshi to visit Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Iran to discuss Afghanistan

Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has begun his tour of Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Iran to build a regional consensus on developments in Afghanistan since the Taliban takeover.

Qureshi will share Pakistan’s perspective on the latest developments in Afghanistan.

During the 24-26 August 2021 visit, the Pakistani foreign minister will hold high-level interactions to exchange views on the evolving situation in Afghanistan and on enhancing bilateral relations, the Foreign Office said.

“Pakistan believes that the neighboring countries have a vital stake in the peace, security and stability of Afghanistan and the region. It is important to coordinate closely with the neighbors to address common challenges and advance shared goals of peace, security, stability and regional connectivity.”

In the bilateral context, the foreign minister’s visit to these countries will build on the recent high-level exchanges to further intensify close cooperative relations.

Pakistan desires to further deepen and broaden its multifaceted cooperation with regional partners. The visit “would help promote a coordinated regional approach as well as strengthen Pakistan’s engagement with Central and West Asia.”
