AT News Report-KABUL: Saudi Arabia has assured Afghanistan of supporting its efforts in fighting terrorism and helping orchestrate the Afghan peace process.
This was conveyed during an official visit of National Security Advisor (NSA) Mohammad Hanif Atmar to Saudi Arabia during which he held meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
“Prince Mohammed bin Salman assured NSA of Saudi led IMCTC support from Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism; he further said Saudi Arabia would always play its role in the Afghan peace process to ensure lasting peace in Afghanistan,” the NSA office said in a statement.
According to the statement, both sides have discussed important issues of mutual and regional interest including the support of Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) from Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism, and the Afghan Peace Process.
Qader Shah, Spokesman of NSA office on Thursday has said that Saudi Arabia officials have assured support for the Afghan government in bringing Taliban into table of talks.
This comes as political analysts believe that seeking help for ensuring peace from outside channels will not have effective outcomes as long as internal issues remain unresolved.
