He said that Pakistan has already paid a high cost of war on terror due to Afghanistan’s instable situation, hideouts of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan should be diminished from Afghan land.

Zakhilwal said the environment concerning bilateral relations was changing rapidly.

He added that numerous issues existed between the two neighbouring countries however Islamabad’s exclusion would be against the interest of Kabul.

He said that culture, history, geography and economies of both countries are interdependent and, “We need to ensure the integrity and self-determination of each other.”

He said Pakistan should also view the ties between India and Afghanistan in a positive light. “We will ensure that alliance with India will be of no harm to Pakistan.”
