“This is the year of transition. This is the critical year in Afghanistan. We are going to have a trilateral and try to talk about how we can advance this process in the simplest, most cooperative, most cogent way so that we wind up with both Pakistan’s and Afghanistan’s interests being satisfied — but most importantly with a stable and peaceful Afghanistan,” Kerry said.
“Pakistan has not taken practical measures towards the Afghan peace process so far. Afghans are running out of patience,” Karzai’s spokesman Aimal Faizi said Monday. “Our message to Pakistan is enough is enough. This time we will tell Pakistan that our people’s patience is running out and we can’t wait for Pakistan to deliver on Afghan peace promises.”
