A leader of the Awami National Party (ANP) says it wants Pakistan to stay away from the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.

 

A leader of the Pakhtun nationalist party asked the government on Sunday to play a proactive role in restoring peace in the neighboring country.

Asghar Khan Achakzai, ANP chief for Balochistan province, regretted Pakistani rulers and religious figures played different roles and pushed Afghanistan toward disaster.

Speaking at a condolence reference for Pakhtun nationalist lawyer Mama Azizullah Khan in Quetta, he linked peace in Pakistan to stability in Afghanistan.

Achakzai claimed the ANP had never hesitated in rendering sacrifices for the rights of Pakhtuns. The party leaders would continue to work for Pakhtuns’ welfare, he promised.
