Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has called on the international community to remain engaged in providing support to the people of Afghanistan in the current situation, Radio Pakistan reported.

In a telephonic conversation with Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday, Qureshi said that Pakistan and China, as part of Troika Plus, made valuable contributions to peace efforts in Afghanistan.

The foreign minister highlighted that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan is of critical importance for Pakistan and the region.

Pakistan had supported the Afghan peace process and played its due role in bringing the Taliban and the Afghan government to the negotiating table, he added.

Qureshi apprised his Chinese counterpart about Pakistan's efforts to facilitate the evacuation of personnel and staff of diplomatic missions, international organisations, media, and others from Afghanistan.

He said both Pakistan and China are iron brothers and strategic partners. He said the two countries have a tradition of maintaining close coordination and communication on common interests and significant issues.
