Mohammad Sadiq, Pakistan's special envoy for Afghanistan, said that Islamabad supports the continuous engagement with the current Afghan government, during a meeting with Thomas West, the US special representative for Afghanistan.
The Pakistani official tweeted that he spoke with the US special representative for Afghanistan on recent developments in Afghanistan.
“I underlined Pakistan's support to continued engagement with Afghan Interim Government and humanitarian support to the people of Afghanistan,” Mohammad Sadiq said in a tweet.
"Discussions have been had over the recent developments, and the engagement with the current government in Afghanistan has also been stressed,” said Tahir Khan Andar, a Pakistani journalist.
However, the Islamic Emirate considers the current government's engagement with the international community a crucial step and a means of success.
"I consider the interaction with the Islamic Emirate as a good and positive move. Governments who place emphasis on this have come to understand that cooperation is the only way to win, make progress and build trust,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Some political analysts think that in order to solve the issues, the US special representative for Afghanistan should speak with the Afghans.
“The best way for Thomas West would be for him to speak directly with Afghans, the Afghan Islamic system, and the Islamic Emirate,” said Hatif Mukhtar, a political analyst.
"I don't think that a new change will come and be really helpful for Afghanistan or create changes in the region,” said Sayed Bilal Ahmad Fatemi, another political analyst.
Thomas West, the US's special representative for Afghanistan, is expected to travel to Germany and Switzerland after Pakistan in order to talk with US allies on shared interests.
