ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Raja Zafar-ul-Haq has said that agreement between United States (US) and Taliban cannot be called comprehensive due to concerns of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

Senator Raja Zafar-ul-Haq said that remarks from the President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani on the US-Taliban deal were not welcoming.

Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Azam Swati said that future of entire region’s politics depends on Doha accord and urged everyone to appreciate government’s foreign policy. India considers itself party to Afghanistan issue, but it’s only aims is to destroy Pakistan, he added.
