China aims to improve ties between Afghanistan, Pakistan

27 June 2017

On the occasion, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi proposed trilateral conference of Pakistan, China and Afghanistan to promote stability in the region and said that Pakistan was quite capable of establishing stability in the region.

"India has always been pushing back against the Belt and Road initiative, so its intention to create its own connectivity network appears to be a strategy to counterbalance the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), especially to bypass Pakistan, which has prohibited India from transporting any goods through its territory due to their tense relationship".

Asserting that the US" ties with India and Pakistan were not a "zero-sum game', the White House has said that the Trump administration's priorities and the nature of relationship with the two countries were different.

The three parties are all committed to maintaining regional peace and stability, enhancing regional connectivity and economic cooperation and promoting shared security and development.

During the visit, the two countries agreed to establish the bilateral Crisis Management Mechanism, Geng said. He said this would enable the two sides to maintain timely and effective communications in case of any emergencies, including terrorist attacks. The Chinese side will support this mechanism, read the statement issued by the Ministry.

President Mamnoon Hussain Sunday expressed the hope that China's honest efforts would bring permanent peace and stability in the region and assured that Pakistan would continue to fully cooperate in this regard.

Aziz said that during talks with the Chinese leader, Pakistan emphasised that it wants peaceful relations with all its neighbours, including India.

Ghani used the message, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, to call on armed opposition groups including the Taliban to join the peace process, if they were genuine Afghans concerned about the loss of innocent lives.
