Pompeo went on to say he's hopeful for peace going forward, but knows the four-decade conflict will not be solved overnight.
"Our nation, due to Islamic brotherhood hopes that Saudi government will help and support our weak nation in this arduous time", the statement added.
"We have seen good signs from lots of regional partners", he said, repeating what his senior aide, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Alice Wells, earlier said in Islamabad last week.
"The high-level talks this time brought us in a risky situation where we may be shaken in our unshakable will for denuclearization, rather than consolidating trust between the DPRK and the USA", a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency on Saturday. As Pompeo's remarks indicated, the Taliban is an indigenous problem for Kabul to resolve with American support, all the more so if Pakistan truly gets serious about controlling its border region.
Scholars from over 30 countries have been invited to attend the conference that can be a major boost for embattled President Ghani, who had made an offer to Taliban to put an end to the war- an offer that was brushed aside by the militant group. "If we think only in one day a 40-year-crisis can be ended we are being unrealistic", he said.
The conference is aimed at supporting efforts to achieve peace and stability in Afghanistan and condemn terrorism and violent extremism in all forms and manifestations within the framework of the teachings of Islam.
The 119-page report underlines United States efforts to end its longest war with a combination of military and diplomatic efforts and recognises the key role that Pakistan can play in achieving this target. "My conclusion from this visit is that the President's strategy is indeed working". It was claimed by the Taliban.
The role of OIC in Afghan peace process had been zero since the USA and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies invaded Afghanistan in late 2001, however, the renewed efforts might press the outlawed group to enter into negotiations with Ghani regime.
