UN Secretary General in Kabul on unannounced visit

UN Secretary General in Kabul on unannounced visit

A statement issued by the office of Afghan President said China wanted to play the mediator's role to lessen the tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan. "Peace with Pakistan was our demand and this must be solved between government-and-government", Ghani said at the meeting.

The Haqqani network, a militant group that fights Afghan and USA forces in Afghanistan and is a US -designated foreign terrorist organization, is reported to be based in Miram Shah, a town in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas in northern Pakistan.

Foreign security forces and Afghan private security personnel stand near the scene of a truck bomb attack in Kabul on May 31, 2017, which killed more than 150 people when the lorry bomb detonated in Kabul's diplomatic quarter on May 31, 2017.

In the meantime, Najibullah Azad deputy spokesman for Ghani told the media: "This time the quadrilateral meeting-which will be held between Afghanistan, Pakistan, US and China-would be different compared to past meetings".

Azad said Kabul had gathered evidence that Pakistan was supporting insurgency and had shared this with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the US Congress and other organisations.

Mattis also said that he wanted more support from United States allies: "We've got to determine what level of support is necessary, and how we orchestrate the worldwide community, not just the Americans, but the global community to deal with this".

Meanwhile, Wang's trip to Kabul comes in the wake of a spate of deadly attacks in the country.

Afghan security officials have accused the Haqqani network of being behind the attack in Kabul. He condemned the suicide truck bombing in Kabul on May 31, which was followed by more suicide attacks during a funeral and a bombing near a mosque in Herat province. Over 150 people were killed and hundreds more wounded.

"In principle, I should say China always supports Afghan led and Afghan peaceful process".
