“There was no such thing as “Doha Process”. Ongoing talks between the US and Taliban is a positive development and Pakistan hopes that this will lead to durable peace and stability in Afghanistan”, he added.

Dr Faisal said Pak-India talks on Kartarpur corridor covered the technical level discussion over its opertionalisation designs for hydrology including passage of flood water.

To a question, he said authorities concerned are being probed Quetta blast and any involvement of external elements will be shared with the nation.

Dr Faisal said Pakistan has taken detailed measures to come out of the grey list of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and foreign ministry has worked hard on the issue.

He said Indian occupation forces during the so-called cordon off and search operations in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) has martyred four Kashmiris including Shah Jahan Mir, Abid Hussain Wagay, 11th class student Owais Ahmad Mir and a 13-year old boy Sajjad Ahmad in Langate, Shopian and Poonch areas.
