Khawaja Asif said Pakistan is engaged with the United States to find common grounds for peace in Afghanistan.

He said that it has been made clear on the United States that there is no military solution to Afghan situation, and India’s role in the region as policeman is unacceptable.

The Foreign Minister also called for regional solution to the Afghan issue and urged the regional countries to evolve a regional strategy for peace in the area.
