ISLAMABAD, Head of Hizb-e-Islami Engineer Gulbadin Hikmatyar on Sunday said that India should also play positive role for peace in Afghanistan.
New Delhi should focus on its internal issues instead of issuing statements regarding the future of Afghanistan, Hikmatyar said while talking to Pakistani media in Kabul.
Former Prime Minister of Afghanistan said that the Indian government should not fight Kashmir war from Afghan soil. New Delhi should respect sovereignty of Afghanistan, he added.
Hikmatyar was appreciative of the efforts of Prime Minister Imran Khan as well for his stance on a peaceful and negotiated settlement of Afghan issue.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmed Khan on Sunday called on Hizb-e-Islami chief Engineer Gulbadin Hikmatyar at his office in Kabul.
They discussed ongoing talks between the Taliban and political groups for the formation of a new government in Afghanistan.
