An Interview with
US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation
“I believe that the Pakistani leadership has supported the peace process, and the time has come for economic strategy, for trade and development and for Afghanistan to become a platform for regional cooperation and connectivity.”
On May 08, US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation, Zalmay Khalilzad, who travelled to New Delhi with a brief whereby US urged India not to create hurdles in the Afghan peace efforts, gave an interview to The Hindu newspaper. Khalilzad stressed India’s “significant” role in Afghanistan’s development, citing “historic ties” between the two countries and shared concerns over terrorist groups active there. He said that India had a “significant role” in Afghanistan’s development, but paradoxically, doesn’t play a role in the international peace efforts. He also praised Pakistan by saying that the Pakistani leadership had supported the peace process. This interview offers a look into the future of Pakistan and the role of India and Pakistan therein. For JWT readers, this interview is being published verbatim.
