He said the world is appreciating and acknowledging Pakistan's reconciliatory and sincere efforts for peace in Afghanistan.

He said that unfortunately, Pakistan is being blamed for the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan by some Afghan elements. He said the role of these spoilers should be monitored strictly.

The Foreign Minister urged all stakeholders for collective hard work and efforts for regional peace as rising violence in Afghanistan is very concerning for Pakistan.
