Qureshi said that negotiations have continued between the US and Taliban, and Pakistan wants progress toward peace as both countries "have a need for peace.”
Pakistan has played its role, he said, and he “hopes that the entire region will seek peace.”
TOLOnews quoted sources on Wednesday saying that Taliban leader Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada has agreed to a seven-day reduction of violence in Afghanistan on condition that a peace deal is signed.
The Taliban leader reportedly said that the reduction of violence in major cities of Afghanistan will be implemented once the US signs the peace deal, which must include a plan for the withdrawal of foreign forces, the sources said, quoting Taliban officials.
According to the sources, if the reduction of violence is implemented, the Taliban will not attack major cities, will not launch suicide attacks and will not block major highways.
