Foreign Minister says US pursuing failed strategy in Afghanistan; adds use of force will not solve any problem
Foreign Minister says he would tell UN members that peace should return to this area and force is not the solution.
Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said the Trump administration's "militaristic approach" in Afghanistan represent a failed policy and talks with the Taliban should be held to bring peace to the war-torn country.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said peace talks with the Taliban could be arranged if Washington work with countries in the region that have influence over the militant group.
Khawaja Asif said he would tell UN members that peace should return to this area and force is not the solution.
He said a four-country group including Pakistan, China, the US and Afghanistan could be expanded to include other countries with influence over the Taliban.
