Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has assured the United States of Pakistan’s commitment towards making all possible efforts for peace and stability in Afghanistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday.
General Bajwa was talking to US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Ruth Sherman who called on him and discussed matters related to mutual interest, regional security situation, and collaboration for humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan, added the ISPR.
“Pakistan supports the inclusive government in Afghanistan,” said General Bajwa.
He also stressed on maintaining “meaningful bilateral engagement” between the US and Pakistan for a durable multi-domain relationship between the two countries.
The ISPR’s statement read that the visiting dignitary appreciated Pakistan’s role regarding the situation in Afghanistan, especially its assistance in the successful evacuation operations following the Taliban takeover.
Sherman also pledged to continue working with Pakistan for regional peace, the statement added.
Accompanied by a seven-member US delegation, Sherman arrived in Islamabad on a two-day visit on Friday to hold “important” discussions with the civil and military leadership.
Ahead of her visit to Pakistan, Sherman on October 1 had demanded of Pakistan to take action against all extremist groups.
She visited India on October 6 and 7 where she held talks with the country’s top leadership.
