Pakistan stands by Afghanistan in every difficult time: Qadri

He said the peace in Afghanistan was crucial for Pakistan while the stability in Pakistan was essential for Afghanistan.


ISLAMABAD, Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Minister Pir Noor ul Haq Qadri Monday said Pakistan and Afghanistan’s future was correlated.

He was addressing an event organized by Muslim Hands International (MHI) for dispatching 20 trucks, loaded with relief goods for Afghan people here at the F-9 Park.

The minister said Pakistan was standing by Afghanistan through thick and thin.

He said Pakistan would not play the role like others when they had no interest or ended up their political existence in Afghanistan, they deserted it in the worst social, political, and economic conditions and even froze the funds pertaining to Afghan people.

He said those who spoke against Afghanistan, were not only enemies of Afghanistan but Pakistan too.

He said the peace in Afghanistan was crucial for Pakistan while the stability in Pakistan was essential for Afghanistan.

Qadri said in the prime minister’s recent tour of China, Afghanistan remained the topmost agenda of Imran Khan’s talking points as how to stabilize and save it from disintegration.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan had made history by holding the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Afghanistan and sensitizing the leaders of Muslim Ummah about the prevailing circumstances of the Afghan people.

He hinted that another conference of OIC was expected in near future to economically empower Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, MHI Chairman Syed Lakht e Hasnain expressed special gratitude to the donors in the United Kingdom in particular and around the world in general who was always at the forefront for serving the people suffering from natural and manmade disasters.

He said the organization was initially going to provide food packages for three months to 1,700 families of Afghanistan worth Rs60 million.

The food items provided to them include sugar, pulses, flour, cooking oil, salt, and rice. The winter kits were also being provided comprising quilts, pillows, blankets, and other items so that they could be protected from the cold weather conditions.

On this occasion, Pak-Afghan Cooperation Forum Chairman Habibullah said the last year’s drought had exacerbated the plight of the Afghan people and if immediate and effective measures were not taken, the situation could turn into a humanitarian catastrophe.

He further added that MHI was one of the first international organizations to help the Afghan people in their time of need.
