Referring to the US policy on Afghanistan and South Asia, Khawaja Asif said peace and stability in Afghanistan remains critical for peace and security of the region.

He said China is playing a constructive role in this regard and together Pakistan and China can contribute to a political solution of Afghan problem. The Minister said Pakistan and China have close counter terrorism cooperation and Pakistan shares Beijing's strong position on three evils of terrorism, extremism and separatism. He expressed Pakistan's gratitude to China for unflinching support in counter-terrorist efforts. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Pakistan and China stand together in the changing regional and global scenario.
