ISLAMABAD (ENN/MD) Pakistan hopes to see the United States (US) leaving Afghanistan as a friend, not as a failure.

Major General Asif Ghafoor, the director general ISPR, in an interview to the Voice of America said before the Doha talks between Taliban and the United States:

“This political reconciliation must succeed. … We wish that the U.S. leaves Afghanistan as a friend of the region, not as a failure,” Pakistan army spokesman Major-General Asif Ghafoor said before the Doha talks.”

The army media representative, in a separate interview to Arab News, said that Pakistan has played its role in bringing the Taliban group to the negotiating table.

“We are a facilitator. We have done our job of bringing them to the negotiating table. What is discussed and how the process moves forward will depend on progress during every meeting,” he said.
