The United States special envoy for Afghan peace Zalmay Khalilzad has appreciated Pakistan’s support for peace process in Afghanistan.
The U.S. envoy expressed hope that efforts underway to secure peace in Afghanistan will bring about better results.
The meeting was held in the backdrop of ongoing discussions.
Khalilzad met Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi in Islamabad.
The U.S. has been saying that Pakistan is harbouring militant groups involved in cross border attacks.
The envoy said, cross border attacks by the militant groups undermine bilateral relations between the two countries.
Talks between the US and Taliban have entered into a decisive phase.
Khalilzad met Prime Minister Imran Khan and also interacted with Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa before departing for Doha.

Gen. Bajwa told the U.S. envoy that Pakistan will play its role to enhance all efforts for peace in Afghanistan.
A deal of between the U.S. and the Taliban is likely that will pave way for intra-Afghan dialogue to push for a consensus peace deal.
