Cameron invites Nawaz to attend Afghanistan summit in London



ISLAMABAD: British Prime Minister David Cameron spoke with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday over the telephone and invited him to attend the Afghanistan Conference being held in London in the last week of November.

“The conference is being co-chaired by Prime Minister Cameron and Dr Ashraf Ghani, President of Afghanistan. It will serve to reiterate the international community’s commitment to Afghanistan,” a spokesman for PM House, Mohiuddin Wani said.

Speaking with Premier Sharif, the British PM cited importance of Pakistan’s role for bringing peace and stability in the war-torn country.

“As one of Afghanistan’s most important neighbours, Pakistan’s participation at the highest level would serve to highlight its commitment to peace and stability in Afghanistan,” Cameron was quoted as saying over the phone.

The spokesman also said that prime minister’s participation in the conference would also enable the two leaders to discuss bilateral relations between Pakistan and United Kingdom besides providing an opportunity for PM Sharif to meet the Afghan president.
