The United States says Pakistan is an important partner in various fronts and both the countries have shared interests in peace and stability in Afghanistan.
In his press briefing, spokesman of US State department Ned Price said Pakistan has been helpful and constructive partner when it comes to Afghanistan and our collective efforts to bring about some semblance of peace and security there.
The spokesman said interests of the United States and Pakistan go well beyond that and include broader counterterrorism interests and the people-to-people ties that unite our two countries.
He said all of Afghanistan’s neighbors need to play a constructive role in helping to bring durable political settlement as well as a comprehensive ceasefire.
He said the United States is going to work very closely to ensure that Afghanistan’s neighbors play constructive role in Afghanistan.
