ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday welcomed the deal between the United States and the Taliban, saying that stakeholders must ensure all spoilers are kept at bay.
Taking to Twitter, the prime minister described the deal as “the start of a peace & reconciliation process to end decades of war & suffering of the Afghan people”.
“We welcome the Doha Accord signed between US & the Taliban. This is the start of a peace & reconciliation process to end decades of war & suffering of the Afghan people. I have always maintained that a pol solution, no matter how complex, is the only meaningful path to peace,” he tweeted. zHe said that Pakistan was committed to ensure that the “agreement holds & succeeds in bringing peace to Afghanistan”.
Now all stakeholders have to ensure that spoilers are kept at bay. My prayers for peace for the Afghan people who have suffered 4 decades of bloodshed. Pakistan is committed to playing its role in ensuring the agreement holds & succeeds in bringing peace to Afghanistan.
Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan warned the world on Saturday that “state-sponsored terror through police and RSS gangs” in New Delhi may lead to the radicalisation of 200 million Indian Muslims.
The premier took to Twitter to warn that radicalisation of Indian Muslims could be similar to Kashmiri youth. He noted that the oppression of Kashmiris and deaths of almost 100,000 at the hands of Indian occupation forces had resulted in Kashmiri youth eventually taking up arms. “I have been predicting that unless the international community intervenes these developments will have disastrous consequences not only for the region but eventually for the world also,” said Imran. This was the second time in a week that Prime Minister Imran Khan has warned the world of the worsening situation in India.
On Wednesday, he had reminded the international community about the Narendra Modi government’s Nazi-inspired ideology. He said fascist ideas seem to have taken over nuclear-armed India, and urged the world to act before it is too late to prevent bloodshed. At least 42 people were killed and hundreds more injured in the worst sectarian violence in Delhi in decades, as groups of Hindutva extremists ran amok in India’s capital city, unleashing what many observers have described as a pogrom against the city’s Muslims.
