BEIJING, June 9 (Xinhua) -- All relevant parties should make joint efforts to create positive conditions for the reconciliation in Afghanistan, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday.
Pakistan's top civil and military leadership on Tuesday condemned a recent U.S. drone strike in the country's southwestern Balochistan Province, saying that the action violated Pakistan's sovereignty, affected the trust between Pakistan and the United States, and compromised diplomatic efforts towards the reconciliation in Afghanistan.
"The Quadrilateral Coordination Group of Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the United States is aiming at creating positive conditions for the reconciliation of Afghanistan, and all relevant parties should make joint efforts to achieve this goal," spokesman Hong Lei said.
Hong said international community should recognize Pakistan's efforts in combating terrorism and supporting the reconciliation process of Afghanistan, and Pakistan's sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected. Enditem
