Kabul (BNA) The US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad on Thursday warned Pakistan to change its policy towards Afghanistan, otherwise, “Islamabad and Washington’s ties will not improve.”
Khalilzad made the remarks while talking to a number of youths from Bamyan, Jawzjan and Parwan provinces in a video conference.
The US envoy said that in addition to a possible peace agreement, an agreement should be reached between Afghanistan and Pakistan based on which Pakistan should play a constructive role in Afghanistan.
“We support this and are seeking that an agreement should be reached between Afghanistan and Pakistan that can result in peace and (can stop_ the interferences Pakistan has made in Afghanistan and I have been a witness of their (Pakistanis’) negative activities,” Khalilzad said. “Since I have taken on the role, I have encouraged them to play a more positive role, because if they want to improve their tikes with the US, their policy toward Afghan-US aviation giant, Boeing, has vowed to implement further measures to ensure the safety of its airliners following last month’s deadly crash in Ethiopia, which occurred less than five months after another crash in Indonesia.
“We will carefully review the preliminary report and will take any and all additional steps necessary to enhance the safety of our aircraft,” Kevin MeAllister, head of Boeing’s commercial aircraft division, said in a statement on Thursday.  The statement came hours after Ethiopian investigators said the pilots of a doomed Boeing 737 MAX 8 had repeatedly followed Boeing’s recommended procedures prior to crashing on March 10, which killed 157 people.
