  • Kh Asif hits back at Pence for scathing remarks

Calling Afghanistan an important partner in the Belt and Road Initiative, Wang said China hoped to synergise its development strategy for Afghanistan and expand bilateral cooperation.

The understanding was reached when foreign ministers of three Countries including Khawaja Asif, Wang Yi and Salahuddin Rabbani met in Beijing on Tuesday as part of Trilateral China-Afghanistan-Pakistan Foreign Ministers' Dialogue.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Khawaja Asif on Monday demanded the United States to ensure the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan.

He expected to cement political trust through the trilateral foreign ministers' meeting, and jointly respond to development and security challenges.

Second, Afghanistan and Pakistan are willing to vigorously improve bilateral relations and agree to establish a bilateral crisis management mechanism to communicate on emergency issues in a timely and effective manner.

He also added that "We will press Pakistan to intensify its counterterrorism efforts, since no partnership can survive a country's support for militants and terrorists who target a partner's own service members and officials".

Pakistan had extended a lot of cooperation with the USA on different occasions in the past, he said, noting, however, that it had to face huge losses instead of receiving benefits. The president has urged the shift away from a "time-based" approach to the protracted conflict by linking US assistance to results and cooperation from the Afghan government, Pakistan and other partners.

The meeting highlighted China's growing role in global hotspots as US President Donald Trump's administration embraces a more inward-looking foreign policy.

The three had agreed to hold a trilateral dialogue during Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to Islamabad and Kabul in June, this year.

China is investing more than $50 billion in Pakistan to create an economic corridor that would link its remote western region to the Arabian sea.

China hoped the meeting could set up a communication platform for Afghanistan and Pakistan that would allow the two countries to build trust.

US leaders have also pressed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to increase their troop commitments to Afghanistan to help train and advise the Afghan forces and redouble the USA -led counterterrorism fight.
