He also welcomed the fact that trilateral dialogue between Pakistan, United States and Afghanistan at official level would be held on Tuesday to prepare the ground for ministerial level trilateral meeting, hopefully next month.
While dilating upon his meeting with President Karzai and his team in Kabul last month, the Prime Minister cautioned that media and think tanks of US should avoid creating misunderstanding between the two countries on Afghan issue.
The Prime Minister reiterated that his government fully believed that Pakistan, US and Afghanistan should form the core group to coordinate their position on the reconciliation and reintegration process, which he emphasized must be Afghan-led and Afghan-owned. As far the strategic documents to be negotiated between US and Afghanistan on International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and US role, the Prime Minister emphatically told that it was a bilateral matter between the countries.
The Prime Minister said that his government would ensure timely implementation of Afghanistan-Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement. The ministers of commerce of the two countries, he added, are scheduled to meet in the immediate future to clear the bottlenecks in its implementation.
The US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan thanked the Prime Minister and his government for their steadfast cooperation and support in war against terrorism and intelligence cooperation, which eventually led to elimination of Osama Bin Laden.
He termed Foreign Secretary’s visit to US for consultations after the Prime Minister’s visit to Kabul as very helpful in promoting better understanding between the two countries on Afghan reconciliation issue.
He agreed with the Prime Minister that Pakistan, US and Afghanistan should form a core group and enhance their cooperation in this process.
He assured the Prime Minister that US would keep Pakistan fully apprised about the US policy on Afghanistan and would share the progress of the strategic documents with Afghanistan.
He stated that Kerry Lugar Bill assistance would help the Government of Pakistan in carrying out the economic reforms which is considered to be imperative for the revival of Pakistan’s economy.
