Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed Pakistan's commitment to strengthen bilateral relationship with Afghanistan, including trade and economic ties and people-to-people linkages.

Talking to Leader of Hezb-e-Wahdat-e Islami, Afghanistan Ustad Karim Khalili in Islamabad, he underscored his longstanding position that there is no military solution to Afghan conflict and a negotiated political settlement is the only way forward.

The Prime Minister reiterated Pakistan's consistent support to the Afghan peace process, and underscored that the Intra-Afghan negotiations process must be pursued with perseverance and patience for an inclusive and broad-based solution.

He said a peaceful and stable Afghanistan will open up new vistas of cooperation in trade and regional connectivity.

Imran Khan also assured the Afghan delegation of Pakistan's continued support for human resource development through scholarships and socio-economic development projects in Afghanistan.
